Golders Green Orthodox Jewish rabbi and three others bailed for second time in sex assault investigation
An Orthodox Jewish rabbi and three others arrested as part of a sex assault investigation have been released on bail until April.
Rabbi Chaim Halpern, of the Divrei Chaim Synagogue, in Golders Green, was detained on February 20 on suspicion of sexual assault and perverting the course of justice.
The 54-year-old was arrested by officers investigating allegations of sexual abuse within the Orthodox Jewish community.
The complaints related to a marriage counselling service being run at the Divrei Chaim Synagogue.
Three others, aged 25, 62 and 64, were also arrested on suspicion of perverting the course of justice.
All four men answered bail at a north London police station this morning where they were released on bail until mid-April, pending further investigations.
