Trial opens against former chief rabbi Metzger in bribery case

As the Ehud Olmert saga closes, the trial of former Ashkenazi Chief Rabbi Yonah Metzger for NIS 10 million in bribes opened on Thursday in the Jerusalem District Court.

In October, the Jerusalem District Attorney’s Office filed an indictment against the rabbi  for bribes after then-attorney-general Yehuda Weinstein rejected arguments by Metzger’s lawyer against the charges at a special pre-indictment hearing.
