Veteran head of Fraud Squad to retire Lt.-Cmdr. Miri Golan - for years the head of the Israel Police's National Fraud Squad - will retire in October and be replaced by Asst.-Cmdr. Shlomi Ayalon, currently Israel Police's Berlin representative. Golan, the highest-ranking woman in the police investigated many high-profile cases, including those of politicians Binyamin Netanyahu, Omri Sharon and Omri's father, then prime minister Ariel Sharon. Golan had reportedly been promised by former internal security minister Tzahi Hanegbi a promotion to the coveted rank of commander, but to no avail. • Rebecca Anna Stoil Report hints at IDF plagiarism A paper compiled by an IDF committee assigned to determine the effectiveness of the military's practice of demolishing Palestinian homes bears a strong resemblance to a doctorate written on the same topic by Dr. Efrat Zilber from Bar-Ilan University, Channel 10 revealed Wednesday night. According to the report, Zilber's home was repeatedly broken into during the years she worked on the paper. A Trojan horse was also installed on her computer, allowing hackers to view her files and copy her paper. The IDF Spokesperson's Office denounced the report, which hinted that the IDF committee headed by Maj.-Gen. Udi Shani had plagiarized. "The committee never heard of or saw Zilber's paper on house demolitions," an IDF statement said. • Yaakov Katz Haredim attack J'lem Internet cafe Scores of haredi extremists attacked a central Jerusalem Internet cafe Wednesday after the store allowed haredim to surf the net, police said. The assailants broke the windows of the Jaffa Road storefront in the nighttime attack, Jerusalem police spokeswoman Sigal Toledo said. Two suspects were arrested on the scene, and police dispersed the rioters. The cafe had been targeted by haredim earlier this month. • Etgar Lefkovits Man held for sodomizing teen A 25-year-old Beit Shemesh man was under arrest Thursday for allegedly repeatedly sexually molesting a 15-year-old boy in the storage room of their apartment building, police said. The suspect, who was apprehended after the boy's parents complained to police, denies the charges, but police have "solid evidence" against him, Jerusalem police spokesman Shmuel Ben-Ruby said. Police suspect that the man sexually molested other boys as well. The alleged molester was brought to a Jerusalem court Thursday for a remand hearing. • Etgar Lefkovits Elei Sinai residents reject housing A Sela Disengagement Authority proposal to relocate former residents of the Gaza Strip settlement of Elei Sinai to an apartment building in Ashkelon has angered the evacuees. The plan reportedly called for them to move temporarily into the apartment building, and after that to take their own responsibility for permanent housing. The evacuees have been living in a temporary camp at Kibbutz Yad Mordechai for the past seven months. During that time, they have been seeking a permanent solution that would house all of them at Kibbutz Palmahim. They said the arrangement with the kibbutz was nearing completion, Army Radio reported. • Jerusalem Post staff
