Minister to rule on alleged sex offender Grynhaus’s deportation

    A British man is waiting for Israel’s interior minister to decide whether he will be deported to face trial for sex offences in the UK.

    Todros Grynhaus, 48, from Salford, fled to Israel on a false passport shortly after he pleaded not guilty to seven counts of the historic sexual or indecent assault of three children.

    He was arrested in Jerusalem in February but has appealed against his deportation under Israel’s Law of Return.

    This week, a Jerusalem judge gave interior minister Gideon Sa’ar until Sunday to decide whether concerns about public safety are strong enough to deny him Israeli citizenship. The ministry confirmed the decision would be made within “a few days”.

    Mr Grynhaus would have to be released if his appeal for citizenship were granted. However, his lawyer has said that he expects the British Home Office to request an immediate re-arrest to return the former teacher to the UK under its bilateral extradition agreement with Israel.
