Israel intel officer arrested for selling probe info

A senior intelligence and interrogations official from Israel’s National Fraud Unit was arrested in late June for allegedly selling information relating to police investigations, according to a statement Thursday from the Justice Ministry’s internal affairs division.

The identity of the police officer is banned from publication for the time being, the Jerusalem Post said.

The arrested officer is suspected of selling information about investigations involving organized crime targets in the Tel Aviv area, including one of the largest crime families in Israel, the report said.

“Tel Aviv police said that following an undercover investigation, they managed to find a civilian who helped broker the alleged transfer of information,” the Jerusalem Post said.

The civilian broker is linked to the same major crime family and was arrested Thursday.
