An Israeli court previously ruled that Rabbi Todros Grynhaus – who jumped bail and fled with his family to Israel in February 2013– could not get citizenship under the Law of Return because, the court said, if it allowed Grynhaus to become an Israeli, every Jewish criminal in the world would flee to Israel to escape prosecution. Grynhaus was trying to appeal that ruling, because citizenship would have put him in the extradition process, which takes a long time, as opposed to simply being deported as an undesirable non-citizen, which usually takes much less time.
And now, after months of legal wrangling, it seems Grynhaus is now back in Manchester, England sitting in a jail awaiting trial:
