Former judge in police custody after extradition from Peru

Former district court judge Dan Cohen was remanded to police custody on Sunday until at least Thursday by the Tel Aviv District Court.
Cohen did not appear in court, with his lawyer Eitan Maoz informing the court that Cohen was too exhausted from his Saturday night flight from Peru and requested a few days to recover and for Maoz to review the case.
Cohen was extradited from Peru on Saturday night to be tried on charges of bribe-taking, fraud, breach of trust, causing misleading information to be included in financial reports and obstruction of justice. He was able to avoid extradition for more than seven years.
