The Jerusalem District Court on Sunday rejected the appeal of suspected child-abusing cult leader Elior Chen against his remand in custody until Thursday. The judge said the fact Chen had to be extradited to Israel from Brazil last week heightened concerns that he would try to evade justice. However, after being presented with an assessment by an Israel Prison Service psychiatrist that Chen does not pose a danger to himself or his surroundings, the court ordered police not to tie the suspect to his bed. Since arriving in Israel on Wednesday the self-styled rabbi has refused to cooperate with police.
