Police have completed their investigation into Rabbi Avraham Yosef, the chief rabbi of Holon and son of late Shas spiritual leader Rabbi Ovadia Yosef.

Rabbi Avraham Yosef is accused of fraud , extortion and breach of trust.

Police believe there is enough evidence to convict Yosef, and have recommended to prosecutors that he be indicted.

Yosef was also briefly a candidate for national chief rabbi, but his campaign was halted by the police investigation into allegations against him regarding breach of trust and a conflict of interests in a dispute over kashrut licensing in Holon.
