Dmitri Malkiel on Thursday was extradited from Ukraine to Israel under suspicion of money laundering and aggravated fraud against hundreds of Israeli victims, particularly immigrants to Israel from the former Soviet Union.

Malkiel was convicted in 2007 by the Haifa Magistrate's Court of committing other crimes involving fraud, and sentenced to four months imprisonment as part of a plea bargain agreement.

However, before serving his sentence, he fled the country, violating a court order barring him from leaving Israel.
