Leaders of Lev Tahor cult released from Mexico jail due to ‘lack of evidence’

Two leaders of the extreme ultra-Orthodox Lev Tahor cult, who were arrested in Mexico on suspicion of human trafficking and sex crimes last week, were set free due to “lack of evidence,” their lawyer said.

The two suspects have been identified in previous media reports as Menachem Mendel Alter, an Israeli citizen, and Canadian national Yoel Rosner.

They were detained following a raid last week on the Lev Tahor compound in southern Mexico and were facing up to 20 years in prison for the alleged crimes.
