Jail time for NII defrauders

The Jerusalem District Court on Sunday sentenced two defendants to up to 22 months of jail time in addition to fines reaching NIS 100,000 as part of a plea bargain for their involvement in defrauding the IDF and the National Insurance Institute by coaching people how to feign psychiatric disorders.

The scam involved charging clients a fee to learn how to fool state psychologists into judging them mentally ill.

The two men were also convicted of falsifying or assisting in falsifying medical documents to support the false diagnosis, which could have led to an illegal loss of state funds of up to NIS 6.8 million.
