The Justice Ministry has requested the extradition of well-known Rabbi Eliezer Berland from the Netherlands and on Wednesday a court in the Netherlands heard its government's appeal to re-arrest the rabbi after a prior lower court order to free him from detention.

The rabbi, spiritual leader of the "Return Home" community, is suspected of sex crimes and at Wednesday's hearing, the Netherlands presented additional violent crimes that he is suspected of.
