Israeli mafia group threatening police representative in Thailand E-mail

A member of a crime organisation in southern Israel has recently been arrested on suspicion of threatening an Israel Police representative in Thailand.

According to Ynetnews, the Israel Police, aided by Interpol, conducted an investigation following a series of recent threats and slanderous comments on social media and other websites against the Israel Police’s representative in Thailand, Deputy Commissioner Yoni Hajaj.

The reason behind the threats and slander was reportedly the belief that Hajaj was involved in the arrest of a murder suspect in Thailand.

Among other things, the suspect wrote online posts with explicit threats against the officer and his children, uploaded photos of Hajaj with a superimposed gun shooting a bullet at his head, and published false and slanderous stories about him.

These online publications were also sent to Israel’s consulate in Thailand and the local Chabad rabbi, as well as to lawyers and businessmen.

In light of these threats, Hajaj was put under tight security.
