A Tel Aviv Magistrate's Court judge was questioned for seven hours by police on Thursday under suspicion of breaching public trust. Judge Dalia Mark-Horenchick is suspected of appointing friend and lawyer Gad Frankel as a receiver in a series of cases in return for kickbacks. Mark-Horenchick announced she would be taking a leave of absence. Police arrested Frankel for allegedly embezzling some NIS 3.8 million entrusted in his care as a receiver, which he used to pay his mortgage and other debts. A Rishon Lezion Magistrate's Court extended his remand by six days. According to Channel 2, Frankel has been suspected of other offenses in the past. Supreme Court President Dorit Beinicsh was notified of the investigation into Mark-Horenchik 10 days ago. A gag order on the case has been imposed by a court since April. Justice Minister Daniel Freimann told Israel Radio Friday that "this case proves that the law does not spare anyone."
