Another sex abuse case in the Satmar sect
A rabbi at a religious school in New York's ultra-orthodox Jewish community has been arrested on charges of sexually abusing students, a law enforcement official says.One can only wonder - was this "school" built for dealing with boys who don't follow their rules? This only leaves me feeling even more disgusted with the Satmar than ever before.
The arrest of Yoel Malik, 33, of Brooklyn comes amid mounting pressure to report allegations of abuse within the insular, secretive community, the largest outside Israel, and barely a week after a respected religious counselor in the same sect was sentenced to 103 years in prison for sexually abusing a girl.
Both cases come from within the Satmar Hasidic sect, the official said.
[...] The school, located in Borough Park in Brooklyn, has been closed amid financial disputes with the family who runs it and has been described as a small, private establishment for at-risk kids. It's not clear how long it has been closed
The allegations arose through an anonymous tip to a confidential hotline. Malik is part of the family that ran the school in Brooklyn.
