Agudah Releases Statement On Supreme Court’s Refusal to Examine Rubashkin Case


rubashkin3The following statement was issued by Agudas Yisroel of America following the Supreme Court’s decision not to review the 27-year sentence handed down to Sholom Mordechai Rubashkin case:

“Agudath Israel of America is deeply saddened by the Supreme Court’s refusal to review the case of Sholom Mordechai Rubashkin. Serious questions have been raised as to the fundamental fairness of his trial and sentence, and he surely deserved a full hearing from our nation’s highest court.

“It is noteworthy that a broad and distinguished array of legal scholars and experts have declared the case to be a miscarriage of justice. As such, the justices have sadly squandered an opportunity to right a terrible wrong.”

  1. We can’t let him sit in prison for 27 years when he did nothing wrong!

    Did the Supreme Court release a statement explaining why they’re ignoring the miscarriages of justice pointed out by all of the congressmen/judges who argued that argued that it should be examined? Or is that hoping for too much?

  2. If Gov. Romney is elected President:
    Can he pardon and release Reb Sholom?
    Can his newly-appointed Attorney General free him?

    The same questions apply regarding Reb Yonasan Pollard.
