Yesterday (Wednesday), a Romanian court sentenced David Geclowicz, an Israeli who was arrested in April on suspicion of espionage, to a suspended jail sentence of two years and eight months. As reported by JOL in April 2016, Geclowicz was arrested along with Ron Weiner for harassing and intimidating the country's chief anti-corruption prosecutor.

Geclowicz received the suspended sentence in addition to 80 days of community service. Weiner is awaiting his sentencing while the Romanian authorities continue to search for a third man suspected of assisting the two Israelis.

Geclowicz and Weiner are both employees of the Israeli security firm Black Cube. The company advertises itself as “a select group of elite Israeli intelligence community who specializes in tailored solutions to complex business and litigation challenges.” The two were arrested in a hotel room filled with surveillance equipment.
