Indictments were finally handed down earlier today against 11 haredim for embezzling almost 50 million shekels from Israel’s Ministry of Education.

The indictments reportedly allege that the haredim – many of whom are prominent figures in the Mea Shearim-based haredi umbrella organization Eidah Charedis – embezzled over 48 million NIS from the Ministry of Education. Some defendants are also charged with money laundering, intimidating witnesses and interfering with a police investigation.

They also allegedly used fake nonprofits to file funding requests, as well as using actual nonprofit organizations to obtain state funding fraudulently.

They allegedly inflated the student body count in yeshivas to obtain additional funds for their organizations, using state-issued identification numbers of men from the Eidah Chareidis community who do not officially accept state funding.

The arrests of the men last year sparked riots in Mea Shearim.
