Deputy Inspector General Bruno Stein of the Jerusalem police said on Wednesday, "We attribute to Elior Chen personal involvement in the abuse cases – harming the children and the mother."
Chen, dubbed the 'abusive rabbi', landed in Israel on Wednesday after he fled the country 18 months ago to Canada and later moved to Brazil. Suspicion has it that Chen instructed his followers to severely abuse children. Chief Superintendent Motti Edri noted that Chen refused to sign the extradition form and declined to board the plane.
