Israeli arrested in Bulgaria over bribery suspicions in Guatemala

Israeli national Azaria Levi, 70, was arrested Thursday by the Interpol in Varna, Bulgaria, at the request of Guatemala.


Levi is a senior official in SBI Infrastructure, a subsidiary of Shikun & Binui real estate, which became entangled last year in a corruption scandal with several of its senior employees arrested on bribery suspicions.


He is suspected by Guatemalan authorities of giving $6.1 million in bribes to government ministries to receive construction contracts. He is also suspected of money laundering.
