A nine-month police investigation into a Temple Fortune rabbi accused of sexual assault has been dropped.
Rabbi Chaim Halpern, 54, leader of Divrei Chaim Synagogue in Bridge Lane, will face no charges in relation to sexual assault allegations made against him in February.
A Metropolitan Police spokesman said a “file passed to the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) regarding allegations of sexual assault has resulted in no charges being brought”.
The orthodox rabbi was arrested on suspicion of sexual assault and perverting the course of justice in February.
Three men, aged 62, 26, and 64, arrested alongside Rabbi Halpern on suspicion of perverting the course of justice had the cases against them dropped in August.
