Natanya Official
Accused of Fraud

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
Oved Ben-Ami, millionaire
former mayor of Natanya, a
major 'shareholder in
Maariv and a prominent
figure in Likud circles, was
arrested last week on suspi-
cion of embezzlement. A
Natanya magistrate or-
dered him released on IL 1
million bail ($50,000) which
was paid by his son-in-law,
former Maariv reporter Eli
Landau.
The police representative
told the court that Ben-
while mayor, had found
trust company to develop
the southern outskirts of
the city. He had had sole
control over this company's
accounts, and the police
have reason to believe that
he took nine checks, worth a
total of IL 300,000 ($15,000)
for his own use during
1973-74.
The police also alleged
that two other checks
amounting to IL 32,000
made out to the trust com-
pany were deposited by
Ben-Ami in his private ac-
count.
