26-years-old citizen of Moldova Bejenari Fedor was detained in the Israel city Ashdod on suspicion of murder, multiple rape and hooliganism.
Local law enforcement officials suspect the young man of committing 4 murders, rape in the different regions of Israel and the burning of an apartment, reports israelnationalnews.com.
The Moldovan migrant was suspected of involvement in the arson of the apartment, in which the police found a dead woman. The witnesses said they saw Bejenari the apartment right before the fire. In order to confirm or withdraw the charges the police of Israel is going to hold a number of medico-legal examinations, which will reveal whether there was a link between the dead woman and the citizen of Moldova.
The pretrial arrest of a young man was repeatedly extended. The lawyer of the accused, Lior Ronen, argues that Bejenari denies all the charges, as well as the fact that he is associated with only one case of sexual harassment, for which he has already been punished.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and European Integration will give its reaction later.
