A federal judge set a $10 million bail Tuesday for an alleged Israeli organized crime figure described by US authorities as one of the world's biggest distributors of Ecstasy. US Magistrate Judge Edwin Torres set the bail amount for Zeev Rosenstein over the objections of federal prosecutors, who said they were concerned that Rosenstein had ready access to huge assets and could readily flee the United States. "I do know that Mr. Rosenstein has significant financial resources," said Ben Greenberg, the assistant US attorney handling the case. But Torres said he was concerned about allowing Rosenstein to be held without bail or even a detention hearing for such a lengthy time since his extradition from Israel in early March.
