Cryptocurrency entrepreneur Moshe Hogeg was arrested on Thursday by Israel police on charges including fraud, money laundering and sexual offences. Hogeg, who also owns soccer club Beitar Jerusalem, was one of eight people arrested by police on fraud charges related to cryptocurrency projects. Among the other people arrested was Adi Sheleg, who served in the past as a witness in the Nochi Danker case. Hogeg was remanded for six days following a short court hearing in Rishon Lezion on Thursday. Police detectives also raided the offices of Beitar Jerusalem in search of evidence related to the case. Hogeg was scheduled to give a lecture on NFTs and crypto on Thursday evening, but posted a message on Facebook a couple of hours before it was set to take place, writing: "I'm forced to cancel today's conference, apologies. It is all for the best."
