Israel Bar Association Offices raided in Sex Scandal - arrest of Effi Naveh
Following two weeks of rumours after the head of Police Lahav 433 went to Netanya and asked for a gag order of a sensitive pot involving the Judiciary, this morning January 16 2019, started with arrests, seizures and interrogations of the main suspects. It turns out Telem Yahav, head of Lahav 433, leaked his visit to Netanya as a dragnet ploy to catch Netanya Judge Etti Krieff off guard.
The police leaked that they avoided filing the gag order in Rishon LeZion so as not to disclose the investigation into a judge who is close friends with Effi Naveh - head of the Israel Bar. It is now revealed that Judge Etti Krieff was the real suspect for offering sexual pleasures to Effi Naveh in exchange for her promotion from her position as a policewoman to that of a Judge. Krieff fell into the trap and talked on the phone, whilst the police were listening.
Apparently District Court Judge Eitan Orenshtein signed the wiretap order. Once deciphered, this morning Effi Naveh was arrested, the entire possessions of his house loaded onto trucks as evidence. Naveh's relatives announced that he is temporarily suspending his position as head of the Bar. This afternoon he will be brought before a judge, probably Judge Allah Masrawa of the Tel Aviv Ha Shalom Court.
Also raided were the main offices of the Israel Bar in central Tel Aviv. Naveh's law office is situated directly across from the Prosecution offices. The District Attorney in Tel Aviv has not yet been raided.
Also called for interrogation this morning was Susie Ozsinay Aranya, an attorney married to Judge Rafi Aranya in Rishon LeZion. Susie Aranya is the daughter of a billionaire Turkish Industrialist, who is now running in the primaries at the Likud Party which is financed by her dad. Susie may not have been surprised about her impending call from the police, since rumours about her were published by Richard Silverstein from California. Silverstein wrote that Susie offered sexual services to Effi Naveh, in return for promoting Judge Aranya to the Tel Aviv District Court.
Incidentally, the blogger Lory Shem Tov, arrested in February 2017, still imprisoned, was charged with sexually molesting Susie and Rafi Aranya for reporting in a blog 3 years ago that Mrs Aranya was in sexual cahoots with E.xxx (referring to Effi) to promote her husband. Now it appears she was correct.
Before her arrest, Shem Tov was in touch with Barak Lazer, legal Advisor of the Court Administration, who leaked to her confidential information. The police obtained a search warrant for Lazer's phone and computer where they found evidence of nefarious contacts with Naveh, Aranya and other judges such as Yosef Elron, Einat Ron, Shelly Rozman Farkash, Iris Arbel Asal, and others. This treasure trove served as the basis for collecting the data at the police.
All this would have stayed permanently dormant but for an interview at Uvda TV news show with Ilana Dyan where Effi Naveh bragged about his powers with Ayelet Shaked, Minister of Justice, and blamed Shai Nitzan, Shaked's nemesis, for personally chasing hi, and ordering his indictment for border control skipping with his new lover, Ms. Bar Katz.
Sources say Judge Eti Kreiff from Netanya, even though a former police prosecutor herself, was not as friendly with police as Judge Poznanski was. Krieff is said to give police a hard time and release suspects more often than others. Sources also say this is why she is the only female judge targetted now, even though there are at least 4 more female judges suspected similarly, and 3 female lawyers who received titles as Heads of Committees at the Israel in exchange for sexual favours with Naveh.
