State prosecution indicted former Bank Hapoalim chairman Danny Dankner on Sunday, charging him with fraud, breach of trust and money laundering.
According to the indictment, Dankner allegedly also opened a bank account under the name of his secretary, and failed to properly divulge his holdings in the Elron company.
In August, Dankner
was suspected of bribery and tax evasion in connection with the Holyland
affair, in which he allegedly paid NIS 1.5 million in bribes to
then-Israel Lands Administration head Yaakov Efrati, to ensure that
industrial land he owned in Atlit could be converted into profitable
real estate developments.
