Wednesday, September 13, police conducted searches and seizure of documents in the three offices of Bank Leumi in Jerusalem and tel Aviv.
Radio «Kahn Beth» said that the searches were carried out by employees of the unit «Lahav-433» in the framework of investigations on the involvement of former senior officials of the Bank to the tax evasion by American clients.
About two weeks ago, legal adviser to the government ordered to start a criminal investigation against several former leaders of Leumi, including the CEO Galiyu Maor, Chairman of the Board of Directors Eitan RAF and Director of the international division of Zvi Iscovich.
Recall that in December 2014, Bank Leumi signed an agreement with the IRS under which he pleaded guilty to the provision of 1.500 citizens of the United States assistance in tax evasion. The deal included the closure of two of the three ongoing investigations against the Bank in exchange for payment of the fine in the amount of 400 million dollars (270 million in revenue and 130 million management of financial services of new York).
