A girls’ school principal in Safed has been placed under house arrest while police investigate complaints of indecent acts against young students.

An investigation was opened in early May following a complaint by several girls who said the principal committed indecent acts against them while they were students at the Kanfei Yonah School. They also said she took advantage of them to help care for her children and perform various household chores.

Police arrested the principal, 39, on suspicion of indecent acts while exploiting her authority. The principal, whose name is under a gag order, was later was released under restrictive conditions.

During the investigation, suspicions were also raised that the principal embezzled hundreds of thousand of shekels from the Education Ministry.

The Kiryat Shmona Magistrate’s Court accepted a police request Wednesday to extend the suspect’s house arrest.
