Police on Sunday morning released Rabbi Yaakov Yosef after arresting and interrogating him over his alleged endorsement of the controversial Torat Hamelech
(The King’s Torah) book.
Yosef was stopped by National Investigation Unit detectives as he returned from prayers in east Jerusalem, and was later released after being questioned.
The rabbi's son, Yonatan Yosef, told Israel Radio that police entered his father's car and "abducted" him at an "unknown location."
Yonatan admitted his father was previously summoned for question over incitement suspicion but refused to show up because of what he claims is "unequal law enforcement."
