December 1, 2010 21:35

The troubled race for the post of police chief was thrown into disarray once more on Wednesday after it emerged that a leading candidate, southern district head Cmdr. Yochanan Danino, is the subject of an ongoing inquiry by the State Comptroller regarding alleged negligence and an alleged possible cover up over the double homicide of two police informants in 2006.

Two criminals turned police agents - Eyal Salhov, of the Ruhan crime organization, and a second agent from the Jarushi crime family, whose name is still being withheld, were murdered in 2006. No suspects have been arrested for the slayings to date.
