Jerusalem District Court judge Moshe Drori came under pressure from Chief Sephardi Rabbi Shlomo Amar and even Interior Minister Eli Yishai not to convict a yeshiva student who ran over Ethiopian-Israeli parking lot cashier Noga Zoarish, Channel 2 reported Monday. According to the TV channel, the two wrote letters to Drori, with Yishai saying that a conviction would ruin the student's rabbinic future.
