Police have asked Rabbi Yaakov Yosef, son of Shas spiritual leader Ovadia Yosef, to arrive at the headquarters of the National Serious and International Crimes Unit for questioning over his alleged endorsement of the controversial Torat Hamalech (King's Torah) book on Tuesday, The Jerusalem Post has learned.

Rabbi Yosef refused the police's request.

Following the refusal, Yosef's arrest now appears likely, although it remains unknown when police plan to bring him into custody.
