Police to close case against Rabbi Zvi Tau


The police are expected to announce in the coming days that the case against Rabbi Zvi Tau will be closed due to lack of evidence that he committed a criminal act, Kan News reported.

According to the report, the police were unable to formulate a basis for criminal charges after examining the complaints against the rabbi and no evidence was found which reached the required threshold for criminal charges.

MK Bezalel Smotrich, who was asked about the investigation recently, answered: "I don't know the details, so I can't comment, basically we are moving between two poles, on the one hand, every person has a presumption of innocence, certainly in the case of a great person like Rabbi Tau. And on the other hand, it is clear that every complaint needs to be investigated, and if there are women who complain, then the complaints should be investigated."

Journalist Josh Breiner reported a few weeks ago in the Haaretz newspaper that as part of the investigation, the police took testimonies from two leading religious Zionist rabbis, Rabbi David Stav and Rabbi Yuval Cherlow. However, Rabbi Stav told the police that he did not have any new information except the information about the two complainants who had already testified to the police. Rabbi Cherlow also told the police that he had no information about other complainants.

Will they now prosecute the criminals that started this malicious smear campaign?
There is a law against slander in Israel, will it be enforced?
Or will the left-controlled judiciary only enforce the law further their political agenda and attack their opponents?

Is this a smear campaign or it is another case where the victims were told there would be consequences if they pursued the case?

Smear against one of the most righteous men on the face of the globe.

They should all be prosecuted including the ones within the system. But that never happens. And then people wonder how come some decided the whole thing is corrupt
