Peru approves extraditio

Four years after he fled Israel, a Peruvian court on Thursday night approved the extradition of attorney and former judge Dan Cohen to Israel. In August, the Tel Aviv District Court lifted a gag order on the publication of an indictment filed against Cohen by the Tel Aviv District Attorney's Office regarding four separate incidents. The charges include accepting a bribe by a public servant for an act connected with his functions, fraud and breach of faith, obtaining something by deceit in aggravated circumstances, assistance in obtaining something by deceit, false entry into the documents of a corporate body, causing misleading information to be included in financial reports and obstruction of justice.
