The former director-general of the Bar-Lev industrial park in the Galilee was arrested on Sunday on suspicion of having taken and given bribes while serving in the position. Police believe that in one instance, the man, a 51-year-old resident of the western Galilee town of Rakefet, allegedly bribed an infrastructure contractor in exchange for a 10 percent cut of his profits - a sum of nearly NIS 1.5 million. The suspect, who served in the position from 2002-06, will have his remand extended on Monday at the Acre Magistrates' Court.
