Gur Finkelstein Sentenced to Eight Years in Prison

September 14, 2014

The Tel Aviv District Court today (Sunday) sentenced attorney Gur Finkelstein to eight years in prison for his part in the 'Violet Wreath' affair.

Among the crimes Finkelstein was linked to was the attempted murder in Haifa of Danny Cohen, the current husband of Finkelstein's ex-wife, in an attempt to gain custody of his (and his ex-wife's) son. Finkelstein has also been ordered by the court to pay Cohen NIS 100,000 in damages.

Finkelstein, who was an attorney for the Church of Scientology, also had been alleged to have ordered the torching the Scientology building in an effort to generate new construction work, from which he was getting commissions by subcontractors he employed, but was acquitted on those charges.


Attorney sentenced to 8 years for hiring hit-man to kill ex’s partner
Lawyer Gur Finkelstein was sentenced to eight years in jail by the Tel Aviv District Court on Sunday relating to convictions that involved conspiracy to commit a felony in his hiring of a hit-man to kill or cause serious bodily harm to Daniel Cohen, the partner of his ex-wife.

Gur Finkelstein was first arrested in 2011 on suspicion of hiring a Jaffa-based mob to bomb the Scientology Center building there for financial gain. When the alleged bombing plot, which involved a truck filled with gas canisters and 300 liters of gasoline, failed, the men were ordered to set the building on fire, police said in 2011. That alleged attempt ended in failure, as well.
