GRAFT PROBE: ISRAEL CHIEF RABBI UNDER HOUSE ARREST

Muslim World

Israel’s chief Ashkenazi rabbi has been put under house arrest after a marathon grilling by detectives on suspicion of bribery, theft and breach of trust, reports said citing police sources on 20 June. “Rabbi Yona Metzger has been placed under house arrest for the next five days after he was questioned for more than 10 hours by the national fraud unit yesterday,” police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld was reported as saying. “If necessary, he will be questioned again.”

Metzger has been the subject of months of covert investigations involving three other suspects, according to police. Officers questioned him on suspicion of “receiving bribes, theft, breach of trust and money laundering,” a police statement said. In 2005 he was questioned on suspicion of receiving perks from a hotel in Jerusalem in return for favours, and police recommended that he be tried for fraud and breach of trust.
