According to the Jerusalem Post, police and trial officials have appealed condemnations in the Petah Tikva District Court in opposition to 5 suspects on charges of money laundering, conducting illegitimate gambling, white collar thievery, scam, and tax stealing, claiming that from 2000 to 2002, they operated a network of around 100 gambling computer programs located in Internet cafes, kiosks and lottery stations all over the country.
The suspects have been identified as Meir Abergil, Yoram Zarfati, Yoel Schneider and brothers Reuven and Ezra Gavrieli. Charges were as well issued against companies owned by the suspects.
Prosecutors summarized a complicated system whereby customers paid at land locations by cash or check, but bets were placed via the Internet in the Dominican Republic with finances via Cyprus and eventually transferred to Israel.
