National Fraud Squad investigators detained the head of the Gan Yavneh Local Council Aharon Dror for questioning on Tuesday regarding allegations he sent municipal workers to collect copies of a local magazine that contained an unflattering article about him. Police raided the council offices on Tuesday and confiscated documents related to the affair. In addition to Dror, police also detained the council treasurer. Police are investigating whether Dror forced the municipal workers to collect the magazine copies and ordered inspectors to fine the magazine to avenge the article.
