The National Fraud Squad announced Sunday afternoon that it had concluded its investigation against Lod Mayor Beni Regev, and announced that they believed that they have sufficient evidence to deliver an indictment against Regev and his associates. Regev and his associates, including a number of family members and his personal assistant Maor Abargil, are suspected of various corruption related charges including accepting bribes, money laundering, fraud, and violation of public trust. Police suspect that the suspects received bribes in exchange for advancing the interests of businessmen and contractors working on municipal projects. In addition, police said that they have evidence against heads of organizations that worked together with the municipality who were suspected of offering bribes to public officials.
