Alabama prosecutor to help Israeli criminal investigation
MOBILE (AP) — A Mobile federal prosecutor has been appointed to help Israel’s government with a criminal investigation that has southern Alabama connections.
Assistant U.S. Attorney George May has been empowered by Chief U.S. District Judge Ginny Granade to collect documents and subpoena witnesses. The evidence will be certified and submitted to the U.S. Department of Justice’s Office of International Affairs, the Mobile Press-Register reported Tuesday.
May is the anti-terrorism coordinator for the U.S. attorney’s office in Mobile. He said the probe has to do with allegations involving bogus diplomas. Because the investigation is in early stages, May declined to discuss details.
