Convicted Yukum CEO Lee Elbaz seeks to vacant the conviction
Lee Elbaz, an Israeli, was hired as the CEO for the Yukom boiler room in Israel. She managed the fraud on investors under direction and instruction. The U.S. jury found her guilty of fraud. She was sentenced to 22 years in prison and $28 million in restitution payments. On Dec. 18, 2020, she filed the appeal, asking for a vacation of the conviction because her former boss Yossi Herzog, also charged, has not provided testimony. He would have confirmed that Elbaz had no intention to commit fraud, the appeal argues.
