More indictments expected in Jerusalem child abuse case on Sunday

Two more indictments are expected to be filed in a Jerusalem court on Sunday in a gruesome child abuse case in the city, as a month-long police investigation spreads to Canada, police said Thursday. The legal actions come as police plan to issue an international arrest warrant against an extremist Israeli Rabbi who fled to Canada and is considered to be the ringleader and "spiritual mentor" in one of the worst child abuse cases in Israeli history. The two suspects who are expected to be charged on Sunday, Avraham Maskalchi, and Roi Tzoref, had their remands extended by a Jerusalem court on Thursday for four days. The two men are suspected of taking part in the systematic abuse of children which included severe beatings, whippings and burnings. The suspects deny the allegations against them.
