Ynet is reporting that Meir Amar, the estranged son of Sefardic Chief Rabbi Shlomo Amar who is reported to be underworld-connected and has no permanent address, visited his mother two days after the kidnapping and torture of his sister's boyfriend. Both Meir Amar and his mother have been indicted.
But, as Ynet reports, Meir Amar did not come alone:
Despite her claim to investigators to have only had passing contact with Meir, her son visited her a second time just two days later together with Labor Party leader Shimon Peres.
While a police report had been filed and police were investigating the crimes, no newspaper or television reports of the crimes had yet surfaced. In other words, the leader of the Labor party appears to have known about the police investigation before it was public knowledge.
What was Shimon Peres doing at the Amar household in the company of Meir "no-permanent-address" Amar?
Ladies and gentlemen, the fix seems to be in. No wonder Rabbi Amar escaped indictment.
