The Police Investigative Department (PID) has launched an investigation into a deal allegedly brokered by the police between Oded Perinian, a member of an alleged crime family, and an insurance company eight years ago. The investigation comes following Israel Radio's exposure of the affair. Ch.-Supt. Robi Gilboa, who was the head of the intelligence and detective bureau in the Lahish area at the time, allegedly brokered a deal between an insurance investigator and Perinian when the latter was accused of stealing army materiel from the Home Front Command. Perinian received NIS 600,000 for returning the equipment during a meeting held in Gilboa's office.
