January 31, 2013 18:55

The economic crimes division of the state attorney's office on Thursday filed with the Tel Aviv District Court an indictment against Ramat Gan mayor Zvi Bar.

The indictment charged Bar with accepting $224,125 in bribes, fraud, money-laundering, obstruction of justice and breach of public trust.

Three entrepreneurs who allegedly gave bribes to Bar were also indicted for bribery, money-laundering and obstruction of justice.

The bribes were allegedly given nominally as loans in exchange for Bar's help with the Beit Liror development project in Ramat Gan.
