The head of the Hazon Yeshaya charity, who is under police investigation due to suspicions of widespread misuse of donation money and other alleged offenses, was hospitalized during police questioning, a police source familiar with the investigation said Monday.
The charity head, who cannot be named due to a media ban, was being questioned at the headquarters of the police's National Fraud Unit on Sunday, when he reported feeling unwell and taken to hospital.
He and three employees of the charity were arrested and ordered by the Rishon Lezion Magistrate's Court to remain in custody for a number of days as the investigation continues.
"Some of the suspects are denying the suspicions, while others are keeping quiet," the police source added. Ten additional suspects who were arrested in connection with the investigation have since been released.
