Sexually abusive Haredi rabbi will be extradited from Holland to face charges

A Haredi rabbi who raped several of his female followers and tried fleeing to Holland will be shipped back to Israel to face the charges:
An Israeli rabbi who fought his extradition from the Netherlands for alleged sex crimes may be turned over to Israeli authorities, a Dutch court ruled.

The ruling on Eliezer Berland, the founder of the Shuvu Bonim seminary, was made by a Haarlem tribunal on Thursday at the request of Dutch justice officials who support extraditing Berland as per the request of Israeli prosecutors, the NRC Handelsblad reported in its online edition. The final decision on whether to send him to Israel will be made by the justice minister of the Netherlands, Ivo Opstelten, in the coming weeks.
I hope they stand firm on extradition. Here's some extra data:
Berland was arrested in the Netherlands on September 11, 2014, upon arrival at Schiphol airport. He had been on the run for two years after charges were filed against him in Israel alleging sexual abuse of young women in the Shuvu Banim Hassidic sect that he founded and led. After learning that he was wanted for questioning, he fled Israel.
Some example he was setting alright. Some of his followers flocked to Holland to be with him, which only confirms he leads a cult; not a good sign. The man's a poor influence, and people have to be taught to stay away from perverts like him.

  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
