Head of massive prostitution ring gets 18 years in prison

YNET   "We've yet to see a case that compares in its severity to Rami Saban's activity," Tel Aviv District Court Judge Khaled Kabub said Thursday before sentencing the head of a massive human-trafficking ring to 18 years and seven months in prison.

Justice Kaboub called the operation “one of the most complex and extensive human-trafficking affairs to be uncovered in recent years, if not ever."

According to the indictment, the defendants smuggled hundreds of women into Israel through the border with Egypt. They used a network which located hundreds of young women in Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Moldova, and Uzbekistan.


  1. Here's a good question: Of course it's a Chillul Hashem of major proportions. However, in today's 'multicultural' environment, is it a Kiddush Hashem to have a Jewish state having an Arab judge sentence a kipah-wearing perp?

    Food for thought...

    1. In Israel it is common for criminals to suddenly sport a kippah when they are being tried in court, It is to somehow fool the judge that they are upright frum people. Some lawmakers have suggested that this be made illegal, i.e. if they were not frum prior to being arrested.
