Hand-written statement by Tax-Authority whistle-blower Rafi Rotem, regarding the complaint he attempted to file with the Israeli Ombudsman on October 29, 2014. The record was signed by Mr Rafi Rotem in the presence of the author. [i] English translation of the hand-written statement follows.

October 29, 2014

Complaint, which the State Ombudsman refuses to accept, and called police against me.

- About 10 years ago, investigation was underway in the Tel-Aviv Investigations Department of the Tax Authority, regarding smuggling of a container of television projectors, worth millions of NIS.

- The import was under the name of a corporation name "Sonar".

- Initial investigation uncovered that the true "Sonar" owners were unrelated to the smuggling.

- The investigation clarified that a central Likud [Netanyahu's part - jz] activist (Sh.B.) was the smuggler.

- Although the container was seized - in an unprecedented step, the container was released by the Director of the Investigations Department Rafi Amiel, and the investigation file was entirely covered up.

- An intelligence source approached me and told me that he was a witness of a telephone conversation of the Likud activist with Bibi (Benjamin - jz] Netanyahu, who then was Treasury Minister, and that Bibi assisted in releasing the container.

- A document in this matter was forwarded to [Tax Authority Investigations Department - jz] Security Officer Yoram Tibi, who did nothing about it.
