Jacob Ostreicher was scheduled for another hearing in Bolivia yesterday at 5pm. Once again, Jacob appeared on time with his attorney, ready to plead his case. But we are told that a Bolivian government minister stood up and immediately asked the judge to recuse himself. This is precisely what happened last month.
On Tisha B'Av (this Sunday), I will be discussing Jacob's situation in a simul-cast with Aish HaTorah's Learning Centre in Canada. I can't think of a topic that's more appropriate for the day.
