Police have closed a child rape investigation in Modi'in Ilit that ignited a media storm, after police reached the conclusion that the original complainant gave false testimony, Judea and Samaria district police announced on Sunday.

The complainant, a kindergarten supervisor in the Haredi city, had already recanted her testimony on at least one occasion, casting doubt on whether or not the alleged rape of a 5-year-old local girl took place.District spokesman Dudi Ashraf said police are weighing the possibility of pursuing criminal charges against the complainant.



A week and a half ago, the supervisor told Channel 2 that she made the story up, saying she did so because she doesn't feel that police take sexual abuse complaints in the community seriously enough.
