Court sentences man to 6 months community service for stealing from the dead

The Ramle Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday gave an unusually light sentence of six months community service to Yehuda Peretz for stealing items from dead persons.

Peretz was previously convicted of two counts of stealing from dead persons in his capacity as part of a private company that supplements Magen David Adom’s work in clearing corpses by ambulance when MDA is unavailable.

The corpses are then brought to a hospital, morgue or prepared for burial depending on the circumstances.
