Another British Haredi Rabbi Under Suspicion?
"The UOHC’s Honorary officers have been instructed by the Rov Rabbi E Padwa to notify the public that upon the advice of Gedolei Yisroel he is in the process of setting up an independent Beis Din consisting of prominent and renowned Dayonim to thoroughly investigate the allegations affecting one of our Rabbonim. This Beis Din will hear testimony and look at evidence and its final Psak and decision will be adhered to by our Rabbinate. The Rov expresses the wish that no further action nor declaration be made until that Psak is issued."
I can't vouch for the authenticity of this letter. However, if it is true, it appears to show that haredi rabbis are attempting to take the law into their own hands rather than allow police to do their jobs. This type of behavior has had disastrous consequences in the past – as many victims of various forms of abuse can tell you from personal experience.
