Supreme Court Justice Yoram Danziger on Monday informed Supreme Court President Dorit Beinisch that he would take a vacation, effective immediately, in order to allow an investigation into his connections with Bat Yam Mayor Shlomi Lahiani who is suspected of  fraud.

Danzinger decided on the step after police made clear their intention to ask Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein to allow them to question Danziger in the investigation.

In April, Danziger was asked about subjects relating to his time as a private lawyer when he represented the Bat Yam municipality as well as Lahiani.

According to reports, Danziger had various business relations with Lahiani while working for the municipality at the same time. According to these reports, Danziger and his law partner at the time, Dori Klagsblad, earned NIS 823,000 between 2005 and 2007.
