A former fuel terminal owner, who evaded murder and tax evasion charges, is facing trial in the US.
Joseph Reischm, who owned the Inwood Oil Terminal in New York, fled to Israel 16 years ago, but was extradited to the US and pleaded guilty on 13 October.
He faces up to 20 years in prison and up to $68 million (45.5 million) in fines.
Reisch was one of 20 people indicted in 1993 in connection with a bootlegging scheme involving crime families and Russian and Israeli mobsters.
Prosecutors said they formed shell companies to evade a federal excise tax on petrol by exploiting a loophole, since closed, in federal tax law.
