Precedent: US extradites tax evader to Israel
Aharon Barashi, a contractor convicted of the tax evasion of NIS 17.5 million (about $4.7 million), was consensually handed over to Israel over the weekend. Within the framework of the plea bargain, he was convicted on Saturday for crimes he committed between the years 1997-2001.


This is the first time that the United States has extradited a culprit to Israel for tax evasion. (Aviel Magnezi)
