The police said on Sunday that it had enough evidence to charge Rabbi Shlomo Shlush the Chief Rabbi of Haifa with bribery, fraud and breach of trust among other offenses, Army Radio reported.

The Rabbi is suspected of granting certificates of Kashruth to businesses that donated to his "Morasha" fund and to using his influence to force companies under his supervision to hire people of his choice.

A different rabbi in Afula who volunteered to teach Torah lessons in the Shita Prison was arrested for smuggling drugs to inmates, Army Radio reported.
