An article in the Jerusalem Post alerts
everybody that the state attorney/police have released two child rapists from the Haredi enclave of Mea Shearim without restrictions, and may not even be pursuing the case seriously in court:
If two men accused of sexual molestation and sodomy against minors were living freely in your neighborhood for three months without any court restrictions, you might be justifiably concerned.
If the presiding judge had stated that, after the initial police investigation the evidence against one of the suspects was “of considerable strength” and a written admission of guilt by the other suspect had been submitted to the police, the ongoing freedom of the accused might be more worrisome still.
And if there were at least seven complainants against the two suspects, the confusion, disquiet, and anger of the families of the alleged victims might be well understandable.
Yet this is the current situation of two ultra-Orthodox men who were arrested almost four months ago and investigated by the police on suspicion of sexual abusing teenage boys in Jerusalem’s Mea She’arim neighborhood.
Since their release from jail at the end of August, the suspects have been living in Mea She’arim without police or court restrictions. [...]
One complainant, currently 15, has two recorded phone conversations with one of the suspects, heard by The Jerusalem Post, in which he admits to having convinced the complainant to perform sexual acts with him, and to having paid him for such acts.
The complainant, Haim (not his real name), also has a WhatsApp message from the same suspect, seen by the Post, in which the suspect admits that he performed sexual acts with the complainant.
Both men were arrested in August, and were released after several days in prison to house arrest. However, the house arrest term expired at the end of August, and neither man has since been under any police or court restrictions.
The State Attorney’s Office declined to answer why four months since the two were arrested, and with so many complainants and other evidence, indictments have not yet been handed down or the case closed.
This is outrageous. It's practically the kind of negligence that enabled Yishai Schlissel, the crazy Haredi who murdered Shira Banki at the homosexual march in Jerusalem
, to roam freely and commit his evil deed. And it's just what destroys the sanity and safety of many youngsters. The authorities should act immediately to reinstate restrictions against both of the rapists. But just as importantly, why doesn't the neighborhood's residents do anything to shun them? Sick.
