Haredim Who Allegedly Harassed Alleged Sex Assault Victims Released Without Charges

Three haredi men in their 60s, leaders in London’s haredi community who allegedly harassed and threatened alleged victims of Rabbi Chaim Halpern and their supporters late last year and early this year have been released by police and will face no further action, a local paper, Ham&High, has reported.

However Halpern, a senior leader in London’s haredi community and the head of the Divrei Chaim Synagogue there who was arrested in February on suspicion of sexual assault and perverting the course of justice, is reportedly still under an ongoing police investigation.

Much of the leadership of London's hasidic communities have been exerting tremendous pressure on both alleged victims of Halpern and alleged victims of the three men not to cooperate with police.

"Allegedly" is used before conviction. If not, the writer could be sued for defamation.

These men must be charged and brought to trial. It is a criminal offense in England to intimidate witnesses as well as to harass.

WOW, and I thought only the Brooklyn DA sold his soul to the Hassids.
I guess the bobbies across the pond are also for sale to the lowest bidder
