The state prosecution has informed on Monday attorneys for Rabbi Eliezer Berland that it intends to charge him with money laundering, tax evasion and other financial crimes.
Berland, the head of the Hasidic Shuvu Bonim sect, is already facing charges over his alleged role in a miracles-for-money scam in which he is accused of taking millions from sick people for prayers or fake cures.
Berland previously served time in prison for sexual assault, following a several-year international manhunt.
