Faced With Claims of Mismanagement, Claims Conference Board to Meet Today

from The Jerusalem Post:

Claims Conference mismanagement key in ‘facilitating’ fraud, internal report alleges

“Management failings” were responsible for “facilitating” $57 million in fraud perpetrated against the Conference of Material Claims Against Germany over 16 years, according to an internal report (see below) leaked to The Jerusalem Post on Monday.

The report, written by Ombudsman Shmuel Hollander, pointed to “systematic failings and problematic organization behavior” as the background to the failure to discover and stop years of approvals of fraudulent restitution claims. It was distributed to members of the board of directors on Monday despite having been presented to the Claims Conference nearly a week earlier.

The board is set to meet in New York starting [today].
