      Charges Considered Against Hazon Yishayahu Founder

      The Jerusalem District Attorney's Office informed Avraham Yisrael, who founded and headed the Hazon Yishayahu (Vision of Isaiah) non-profit organization, that it was considering putting him on criminal trial subject to a hearing on allegations of aggrevated fraud, falsifying corporate documents, theft by a manager, money laundering and obstruction of justice.

      Yisrael is suspected of making a tendentious presentation before potential donors regarding the scope of the organization's activity with the intent of deceiving them into making donations. The stated goal of the organization was to help the needy, including Holocaust survivors.
