A 31-year-old Filipino caregiver was arrested Wednesday for allegedly exploiting her 100-year-old Jerusalem employer by pocketing over NIS 100,000 of his money, police said. The foreign worker, who was apprehended following a complaint lodged by her employer's grandson, was suspected of taking over NIS 100,000 from the Holocaust survivor's money over the last six years in order to buy herself and a friend who lives in east Jerusalem an assortment of personal items. The caregiver has confessed to the allegations against her, police said. Police will ask a Jerusalem court on Thursday to remand the foreign worker until the end of legal proceedings, and plan to press criminal charges against her.
