Press TV

"The source of millions of dollars allegedly laundered by five rabbis in the US state of New Jersey has been Israel, Israeli media have revealed.

The source of at least some of the millions of dollars involved in alleged money-laundering by the rabbis arrested came from Israeli sources, The Jerusalem Post reported on Sunday.

The mayors of Hoboken, Ridgefield and Secaucus, New Jersey, and five rabbis are among 44 people charged by a US court with corruption and money laundering.

Court documents show that Eliyahu Ben Haim used a source in Israel to supply money in the US in exchange for a 1.5 percent fee.

Prosecutors say another rabbi, Levy Izhak Rosenbaum, convinced people in Israel to donate their kidneys for one-sixteenth of the price they were later sold........."
