The case has been transferred to the National Serious and International Crimes Unit and a bodyguard may be assigned to Marom.

Yitzhak and Meir Abergil were arraigned on murder, money-laundering, extortion drug trafficking charges along with three others in a Los Angeles federal court on January 14, the Los Angeles Times reported.

The 77-page US federal indictment includes 32 charges. Yitzhak Abergil, the leader of the crime family, will face 11 and Meir, the crime family’s money-manager, six.
