New York - Brooklyn DA: Crown Heights Bes Din Gag Order Meaningless
New York - Brooklyn D.A. Charles Hynes responded in an email to Catholic League President Bill Donohue to the news release on the Beth Din of Crown Heights controversy.
Hynes said, in part, “In the 21 years I’ve served as Brooklyn’s District Attorney I have never been deterred by anyone including the various Beth Dins in Brooklyn from fulfilling my responsibilities as the Chief Law Enforcement Official of Kings County.”
He went on to say that “nothing can interfere with my authority to investigate and prosecute any allegation of crime in my County.”
