Bar Refaeli’s mother to appear before prison release committee

Tzipi Refaeli, the mother of Israeli supermodel Bar Refaeli, is expected to appear before a prison release committee on Tuesday.

Her appearance at the committee means she could be released early from a 16-month prison term for tax evasion she was sentenced to last September.

Tzipi Refaeli is imprisoned at Neve Tirtza Prison in Ramle, a women’s prison, which houses some 150 inmates. She contracted COVID-19 in prison in January.

She has also requested a pardon from President Rivlin.

Bar Refaeli was sentenced to community service in the case.
