The Rishon Lezion's Magistrate's Court extended the remand of David Vanunu,
head of the Tax Authority's National Investigations and Field Intelligence Branch, by a week on Monday. Vanunu is suspected of accepting bribes from several individuals in exchange for ending tax investigations against them over unpaid fees. "He sold tax for financial greed," Judge Rafi Arniya said during the hearing. Vanunu is suspected of receiving bribes over a period of years in
exchange for "making problems go away" for individuals who became
entangled with tax problems.
