Ministry official, teacher named as suspects in Bagrut leak

More details surfaced Sunday on the leaked Bagrut affair, which is being investigated by the Jerusalem Police Fraud Division.
Rachel Kedem, a member of the Ministry of Education's exclusive committee that composed the high school matriculation exam, is alleged to have illegally passed questions from it to Eli Cohen, a pre-academic teacher from the northern Israel Technion University, supposedly to 'consult his opinion'.
Cohen, who is also a private mathematics tutor, passed on the information to a student of his, who sold them to others for NIS 1,000. The leak rapidly gathered momentum, with subsequent sale prices rising even higher.
The three suspects arrested Sunday were released later that day under strict limitations.
