A Lithuanian Court has rejected the prosecutor’s request for jail time in the Shlucha case brought against Shlucha to Vilna Mrs. Nechama Dina Krinsky, instead imposing a fine of 10,000 euros.
As first reported on Anash.org, prosecutors in Vilnius have accused Mrs. Nechama Dina Krinsky of intentionally causing the closure of the Menachemo Namai Gymnasium school under her management. The school closed in 2017 after being rendered bankrupt due to debt for unpaid taxes for workers’ salaries.
Despite the clear evidence that she and her husband tried their utmost to raise the funds needed to avoid the school’s bankruptcy, prosecutors continued to pursue the case against Mrs. Krinsky.
According to the Krinskys, the school accrued debts after it failed to receive any money from restitution payments for World War II. Millions of euros are allocated annually for Lithuania’s Jewish institutions via the Good Will Fund foundation, led by the American Jewish Community (AJC).
Today, a judge has rejected the prosecutor’s attempt to jail the Shlucha and instead imposed a fine of 10,000 euros.
Despite the victory, prosecutors may appeal the judge’s decision. “We would be extremely grateful for your continued tefillos,” Rabbi Krisky said.
Mrs. Krinsky and her husband Rabbi Sholom Ber Krinsky have been serving as shluchim to the Lithuanian capital of Vilna for the past 28 years. During that time, they have worked tirelessly to provide for the spiritual and material needs of a community decimated by the Holocaust and ensuing Soviet repression
“We truly feel the Koach of your Tehillim, good wishes and support that brought about this Nes and will bring about the complete Didan Notzach speedily iyh,” Mrs. Krisky said.
