State files indictments in Remedia case

Company heads, Health Ministry officials implicated in allowing faulty baby formula to be sold in Israel indicted

Nearly five years after faulty Remedia baby formula caused the deaths of three babies and left 20 others severely debilitated, the State Prosecutor's Office finally filed indictments against those involved in the case.


Filed with the Rishon Lezion Magistrates' Court Tuesday, the indictments named Former Remedia owner Moshe Miller, CEO Gideon Landsberger and food technologist Frederic Black; as well as the Health Ministry's Dr. Nitzan-Klosky, former director-general of the National Food Service, and several Health Ministry inspectors, who were supposed to have the imported baby formula tested.


The indictments included multiple counts of negligent homicide, criminal negligence, and sabotage as well as reckless endangerment prompted by professional negligence and acts contributing to the spreading of a disease; along with various other offenses.


Along with the indictments, the State Prosecutor's Office also filed a motion for an extended judging panel, asking the court appoint a three-judge panel to preside over the case.
