Former Meuhedet officials indicted for fraud

The Tel Aviv Economic Crimes Unit on Thursday filed an indictment with the city’s district court against 11 defendants, including top former Meuhedet officials for a NIS 40 million fraud scheme from 2003-2008 to illegally grab customers from competing medical insurance providers.
The scandal first broke with a State Comptroller report in 2010 calling attention to grave irregularities in the operations of the country’s third-largest health insurance provider, Meuhedet.
Following years of investigations, 11 individual defendants and 10 straw-man companies were indicted for participation in the fraud scheme.
Some of the central defendants were top former Meuhedet officials – marketing head Yehuda Eliash and former Jerusalem District head Moshe Chevroni – as well as Avraham Siboni, who headed an external Meuhedet-linked marketing company.
