Former head of the Bar Association Efi Nave made his first appearance at the Rishon LeZion court on Sunday morning with his romantic partner in toe.
Nave was suspected of illegally entering the country with his lover, which he attempted to keep hidden from his divorce case.
In January, he resigned from his position at the Israeli Bar Association after it was alleged that he had used his influence to appoint
judges in exchange for sexual favors.
The information was gleaned from an old cell phone he once owned, which was given to reporter Sharon Shforer who later broke the story to the public.
Nave is accused of attempting to hide leaving the country with his partner to gain advantage in the court proceedings that he is currently involved in with his divorce.
He is accused of illegally giving his gate pass to the woman, so that she could pass through the airport gate without security recording the two leaving together.
