    Jul 06, 2016 Go comment!
    Justice Fayeeza Kathree-Setiloane told Rabbi Eliezer Berland late last week in the South Gauteng High Court in Johannesburg that as he was so "well-connected" he remained a flight risk and she therefore denied “the Rabbi on the run” bail as he awaits extradition to Israel to face charges of alleged sex crimes. The fugitive rabbi had asked the court for bail until the review of his extradition order.
