Police on Wednesday morning assessed that they have enough evidence to indict Bat Yam Mayor Shlomi Lahiani on suspicions of massive fraud, money laundering, bribery, and the alleged use of whole sections of the municipality for personal profit.
Army Radio reported that the investigation was ongoing, after Lahiani was released to house arrest on Tuesday night for a period of eight days.
He was also banished from entering the Bat Yam Municipality building for the same period.
