A well-respected school principal in Bnei Brak was arrested by police on Tuesday 23 Kislev 5774 on suspicion of fraud. The suspect is a 51-year-old resident of the city and her school is part of a respected network.
Police allege that during the past two years she defrauded the system of 300,000 NIS which she took for herself. It appears that she was regularly putting in for overtime that she never did in addition to taking money received from parents for the school. She allegedly did not report these funds to school officials.
She was taken to the Tel Aviv Magistrate Court where police requested that she remain in jail as the investigation against her continues.
