A 14-year-veteran of the Border Police was indicted on Monday for dozens of counts of accepting bribes of up to NIS 5,000 to allow cars and trucks to pass through checkpoints from the Palestinian Authority to Jerusalem without being searched.

The policeman, At’a Mar’i, from the Druze village of Beit Jan, was indicted for accepting bribes, paying bribes, and conspiracy to commit a crime, among others.

Two other security guards were also indicted for similar counts. Police believe he may have accepted up to NIS 5,000 for more than 50 cars and trucks, which passed through the checkpoint without a security check and without a record of the cargo carried by the trucks.
