A New JE rabbi and his wife and 3 other couples defrauded state and federal public assistance programs out of more than $one million by underreporting their incomes, according to criminal complaints released Monday. One of the couples continued to receive Medicaid assistance for their children despite making more than $one million in both 20one2 and 20one3, according to 1 criminal complaint.

They made more than $one million in 20one2 and in 20one3, the complaint alleges, but still received more than $ninety-six, in Medicaid benefits, including $twenty-two, to pay for medical expenses when their sixth child was born in November 20one3. “Everything is going to work out and all will be vindicated,” said Rachel Sorotzkin’s attorney, Fred Zemel. The couples charged in federal court were released on $one00, bond and their travel limited to New JE, NY and RI, while the couples charged in state court were released without bail, but had to surrender their passports.

The investigation was initiated by the FBurundi and the New JE Office of the State Comptroller. It later expanded to include U.S. Social Security Administration, the state Department of the Treasury and the Ocean County prosecutor’s office. “Financial assistance programs are designed to alleviate family hardships for those truly in need,” Coronato said in a statement. “My office gave clear guidance and notice to the Lakewood community in 20one5 of what is considered financial abuse of these programs. “Those who choose to ignore those warnings by seeking to illegally profit on the backs of taxpayers will pay the punitive price of their actions.”

“The agreement has sent a shiver down my spine,” Mr Masih told DW. “It is wrong to set a precedent in which you pile pressure onto the judiciary.” “The current situation is very dangerous for us. We have no security and are hiding here and there, frequently changing our location.” He added: “My wife, Asia Bibi, has already suffered greatly. She has spent ten years in jail. My daughters were dying to see her free, but now this review petition will prolong her plight.”

He described the government’s deal with the protesters as “firefighting”, saying it helped to “resolve the situation without resorting to violence”. The trial stems from an argument Asia Bibi had with a group of women in June two009. They were harvesting fruit when a row broke out about a bucket of water. The women said that because she had used a cup, they could no longer touch it, as her faith had made it unclean.

In Wednesday’s ruling, the Supreme Court said that the case was based on unreliable evidence and her confession was delivered in front of a crowd “threatening to kill her”. Islam is PK’s national religion and underpins its legal system. Public support for the strict blasphemy laws is strong.

They make up just one.six% of the population. The Christian community has been targeted by numerous attacks in recent years, leaving many feeling vulnerable to a climate of intolerance.
