JERUSALEM (JTA) -- Former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert is among 18 people who will be indicted in Israel's largest real-estate scandal.
The Tel Aviv District's Prosecutor's Office announced the indictments on Monday. Among the others indicted are former Olmert chief aide Shula Zaken and ex-Jerusalem Mayor Uri Lupolianski, in the Holyland apartment project affair following a court hearing.
An Israeli police investigation completed last August recommended Olmert's indictment.
JERUSALEM (JTA) -- The leaders of six educational institutions accused of using fake identification cards to cheat the government of millions of shekels have been arrested.
In raids on nonprofit organizations' offices associated with the haredi Orthodox institutions, Israeli police reportedly confiscated counterfeit ID cards along with a printer, rubber stamp and laminating machine.
The schools are located in Mea Shearim in Jerusalem, Ramat Beit Shemesh and Betar Ilit in the West Bank.
