A-G to likely indict former chief rabbi Metzger in NIS 10 million bribery case

Attorney-General Yehuda Weinstein on Tuesday announced that he is heavily leaning toward indicting former Ashkenazi Chief Rabbi Yonah Metzger for NIS 10 million in bribes, though Metzger will have a last shot at a special pre-indictment hearing to convince him otherwise

Weinstein emphasized that his decision was in keeping with the recommendation of State Attorney Shai Nitzan and other prosecution officials on the case.

Usually such pre-indictment hearings do not change the attorney-general’s decision, but Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman did succeed in significantly reducing the scope of the charges against him.
