There are increasing comments popping up that there is no evidence against Tropper. That the tapes are forged or misunderstood.
Let me present something rather basic that Rav Sternbuch has said recently to someone who asked about Tropper's guilt.
Rav Sternbuch, shlita said the following:
The fact that this story with the accompanying accusations has been printed in newspapers around the world, the normal thing would be to hire the best lawyer in the world and issue a public denial and sue all the papers for libel. The mere fact that this has not been done is the biggest proof the accusations are true. It is an example of what our Sages say that silence in the face of an accusation is understood to be an admission "Shetikah k'hodah".
