Corruption scandal hits Ashdod port

Cairo: A corruption scandal has engulfed the Israeli port of Ashdod with 15 suspects including union chairman Alon Hassan arrested yesterday.

Hassan’s cousin David Hassan, the deputy chief of Dana Port Services and Logistics, one of the companies suspected of unlawful dealings with the port, was also among those arrested, as was Dana CEO Yaniv Belter and former Ashdod Port CEO Shuki Sagis, an ally of Alon Hassan who resigned in July.

The arrests come after a year-long undercover police investigation carried out in cooperation with the Israel Tax Authority and the Israel Money Laundering and Terror Financing Prohibition Authority.  [28/05/14]
