Court extends remand of Bat Yam deputy mayor until Friday

The Rishon Lezion Magistrate's Court on Wednesday extended the remand of Deputy Bat Yam Mayor Uri Buskila until Friday.
Buskila was arrested overnight Tuesday on suspicion of accepting bribes from taxi companies in the city. His arrest comes a month after Bat Yam Mayor Shlomi Lahiani's arrest amid an ongoing police investigation over suspected public corruption in the municipality.
