Who are those rabbis?

Leading rabbis, including R.Elyashiv, signed a letter defending yeshiva dropout Elior Chen, who has been indicted for horrendous child abuse and is calling on the religious community to support him.

The rabbis are not monsters. Rather, they deeply mistrust the secular legal system—for good reason—and are not willing to give up one of their own for prosecution by atheists.

A possible solution to the problem of the religious community protecting its scoundrels from secular prosecution would be to allow rabbinical leaders criminal jurisdiction over their members.
