The Southern District Attorney’s Office on Monday submitted four indictments in the Beersheba District Court against 15 defendants, all of the same Beersheba crime syndicate. The state said that in the coming days another indictment is expected to be filed against a rival criminal organization that operated in Eilat.

The large busts of the crime syndicates came about as a result of joint efforts between police personnel fighting organized crime and a unit investigating systematic financial crimes such as money laundering and tax fraud.

Most of the case against the two crime syndicates was assembled by one of the syndicate’s turncoat agents who had worked in both syndicates, but turned state’s witness and remained undercover gathering evidence for some time.
