Michael and Ruth Haephrati, the couple who allegedly developed the Trojan horse industrial espionage software, were remanded in custody for 10 days by Tel Aviv Magistrates Court on Tuesday. The Haephratis landed in Israel on Monday night after being extradited from the UK following their decision earlier this month not to appeal against their expatriation. Defense lawyer Eli Zohar said the couple want to complete unfinished business. "The way to solve their problems was to come to Israel," he said in an interview. However, he declined to comment on reports that the couple have agreed to a plea bargain whereby they will name the companies who bought their Trojan horse in return for a lighter sentence.
