In July 2008, Moshe Malul, a citizen of Israel, was indicted for racketeering, conspiracy to commit extortion, murder and conspiracy to import ecstasy into the United States from Belgium, as set out in a 77-page federal grand jury indictment in the Central District of California.
According to the indictment, Malul was a captain of the Abergil crime family and used the power and influence of the Abergil family to conduct criminal activities in Israel and around the world.
Malul was extradited in January 2011 to the United States from Israel. The January 2011 extradition was the first of its kind under Israel’s racketeering law, a law that parallels the United States' federal racketeering statute known as the RICO Act, which is designed to combat organized crime. (1)
On September 25, 2012, Malul plead guilty on charges of racketeering and murder based on Malul’s alleged hiring of members of the Vineland Boys street gang to kill Arron Atias in retaliation for Atias stealing 700kg of ecstasy that belonged to Malul; he was sentenced to 296 months in Federal prison and a fine of $5 million USD.
On September 10, 2014, Moshe Malul BOP Register Number 60115-112 was successfully treaty transferred back to Israel. (2)
