Three days following the arrests of six members from the Berland Shuvu Banim cult, police on Thursday announced making another arrest. They are requesting to hold him without bail for eight days at his arraignment hearing.
Police are continuing the investigation into fraud, money laundering and other White Collar crimes in connection with funding for the Shuvu Banim organizations.
Five suspects were taken for a remand hearing on Thursday morning in the Jerusalem Magistrate’s Court. Police requested to continue holding them without bail for an additional eight days. One of the fears is that if released, the suspects will interfere in the ongoing investigation.
At present, police report a total of seven suspects are incarcerated in the case.
