Report: Indictment to be Filed Against Rabbi Yonah Metzger Pending Hearing


The prosecution shortly intends to submit an indictment, pending a hearing, against former Chief Rabbi Yonah Metzer, according to a report by Channel 10.

Rabbi Metzger was arrested last November, which was later transferred to house arrest, over suspicions that he had used his position as chief rabbi to engage in bribery, money laundering, acquisition through deceit, and additional crimes to the tune of millions of shekels.
