The Israeli police rejected the list of demands presented by Israeli businessman Lev Leviev for cooperation in investigating a massive diamond smuggling scheme that was registered on Saturday night by its company LLD, Channel 2 News.

Channel 2 reported on Friday night that a document submitted to police by his lawyers has revealed that he will come to Israel in this situation that after his interrogation he will be allowed to return to Russia, where he currently lives, and if necessary he returns to Israel.

A source in the police told Channel 2 News on Saturday: "Levy will be investigated like every other suspect, without any prior arrangement with thorough investigation requirements, we do not promise that they will leave the Israelis after their inquiries."

Uzbek SSR-Israeli taiqun recently went to London from Russia, and is afraid that if the Israeli arrives for interrogation, the police will arrest him immediately.

Laveev reads the documents presented by lawyers, "Levive is ready to inform you and provide complete and detailed answers to any questions." Believing that he was not a resident of Israel, lawyers proposed two alternatives: either Levite could be disposed of in the place of investigators' residence; Or, he will come to Israel and will remain under house arrest during his interrogation until he / she will be allowed to work overseas for completion of his inquiry.

Levy will submit a guarantee to ensure future cooperation in the investigation and will be returned for further inquiries, as per "fair notice".

On Tuesday night, 42-year-old Mazal Haddi, a junior employee of the LLD committed suicide by jumping out of his office window in the Diamond Gun District of Ram Gun.

The LLDA has asked Attorney General Avichai Mandelaite to investigate the circumstances of the suicide that his death suspects the "aggressive and imbalanced" interrogation tactics.

Israeli police expressed condolences over suicide, but described the company's statement as "basically inaccurate".

"Israeli police always work with essential sensitivity, while carefully maintaining the respect and dignity of suspected people and interrogating and taking various investigative action to bring the culprits to justice."

Earlier this month, police arrested six suspects, including Levi's son and brother, on the basis of suspected smuggling of diamonds worth millions of shekels in Israel.

They suspect money laundering, income tax act crimes, customs crimes, conspiracy theories, false documents of corporate documents, fraud and other crimes.

In collaboration with the State Attorney General's Office of Taxation and Economic Department, the arrest of the 433 National Crime Unit of Israel Police and taxation authority was arrested after the operation of divorced.

Police believe that the suspect played a role in planning and smuggling diamonds in Israel for many years without informing the relevant authorities.
