Police: ‘Vast sums of public money’ at center of massive graft case against Netivei Israel

Police on Monday arrested and detained for questioning over 20 people – including senior officials from a major government owned company – accused of bribery, money laundering, and fraud.

The allegations against the current and former officials from Netivei Israel – National Transport Infrastructure Company LTD,  revolve around a sophisticated, methodical system they set up for funneling money to their own pockets through shifting vast amounts of public money to cronies and associates, police said Monday.

The suspects – who cannot yet be named – include a number who are involved in Case 242 – “The Yisrael Beitenu case”. Though the two cases are not connected – according to police – the current investigation against Netivei Israel involves a very similar method to that used by the suspects in the 242 case.
