Defendants guilty of Claims Conference fraud

 

(JNS.org) More than three years after the discovery of fraudulent activity at the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany (“Claims Conference”), which continued for about a decade and a half and deprived Holocaust survivors of more than $57 million, former Claims Conference Director of Hardship and Article 2 Funds Semen Domnitser and two co-conspirators on Wednesday, May 8 were convicted on charges of mail fraud and conspiracy to commit mail fraud.
During the course of a prolonged investigation that began in 2009, 31 people — including 11 employees of the Claims Conference — were criminally charged and arrested in the conspiracy. Twenty-eight defendants pled guilty. U.S. v. Domnitser et al., the case against the three who pled innocent — Domnitser, Oksanna Romalis, and Luba Kramish — had started April 8 at the Daniel Patrick Moynihan Courthouse in New York City. Sentencing is set for Sept. 10.
