Israel: Owner of Beitar Jerusalem FC arrested for alleged crypto fraud and sex crimes

Israeli police have arrested Moshe Hogeg, the owner of anti-Arab football club Beitar Jerusalem and crypto mogul, over money laundering, fraud and sexual offences.

Hogeg, who bought Beitar Jerusalem in 2018, one of Israel's top football clubs, was arrested with seven other businesspeople on Thursday, following extensive investigations by Lahav 433, a police anti-corruption unit that tackles financial crimes.

Lahav 433 said the suspects had pocketed tens of millions of shekels through deception and tricking investors into pouring money into cryptocurrency investments that Hogeg had opened.

The Israeli police arrested Hogeg and a family member at Beitar Jerusalem's office. Homes and offices of the other suspects were also raided, to collect evidence.
