Four vigilante police officers from Nahariya serving time for attempting to bomb
the car and home of alleged underworld crime figure Michael Mor were released
from prison on Sunday, in time to spend Pessah with their families.
Hadad, Yaniv Ashur, Yossi Levy and Rami Musa were convicted in 2009 of placing
bombs in the car and home of Mor, and sentenced to a year in prison.

they could be at home with their families.
The four officers said that
Mor and his associates waged a campaign of intimidation against the officers and
their families, and had thrown grenades and laid explosives at their family
After his release on Sunday, Yaniv Ashur told reporters “we have
mixed feelings right now.
We’re very happy to be home and very confused
about what we’ll do in the future with our lives. We do know that many doors
have been opened for us.”
In addition to their prison sentence, the
officers were also kicked out of the police force.
Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch is currently working to have the four men
reinstated in the police force.
