Much ado about nothing….back to our regularly scheduled cease fire.
Channel 2 TV reports that President Ruby Rivlin is under investigation by police for allegedly receiving thousands of shekels from Real Estate mogul Dudi Appel a decade ago.
Rivlin claimed the story was previously investigated twice, and closed because he hadn’t done anything wrong.
Appel is currently serving a 3.5 year sentence for a bribery sentence related to some real estate deals in Lod.
Appel was linked to Ariel Sharon and other politicians.
