French police have arrested two Jewish men from Paris on suspicion they pressured parents of allegedly molested minors not to press charges.

The two men, identified as Andre T. and Rabbi A., were arrested July 31, according to the RTL news network. The two men deny the allegations, the report said.The actions attributed to the men are connected to sexual abuse allegations at the Chabad-Lubavitch Beth Hannah elementary school for boys. A supervisor at the school was indicted for sexual abuse of minors last year, the French news agency AFP reported, and a principal, Rabbi Benjamin M., was indicted in February for “non-reporting of sexual abuse of minors under 15 years” of age.

The men are both senior members of the Chabad movement in the Paris region, RTL reported.
