Police on Thursday were expected to arrest Rabbi Yaakov Yosef, son of Rabbi Ovadia Yosef, president of the Shas Council of Torah Sages. Yosef is the last person who has not yet been questioned by police over a written endorsement of the book, Torat Hamelech.

The move comes on the heels of riots in Jerusalem on Monday that were sparked by the police detainment of Kiryat Arba-Hebron Chief Rabbi Dov Lior, carried in its wake widespread condemnation over the right-wing protesters’ disregard for the rule of law.
