The following statement was issued by Agudas Yisroel of America following the Supreme Court’s decision not to review the 27-year sentence handed down to Sholom Mordechai Rubashkin case:
“Agudath Israel of America is deeply saddened by the Supreme Court’s refusal to review the case of Sholom Mordechai Rubashkin. Serious questions have been raised as to the fundamental fairness of his trial and sentence, and he surely deserved a full hearing from our nation’s highest court.
“It is noteworthy that a broad and distinguished array of legal scholars and experts have declared the case to be a miscarriage of justice. As such, the justices have sadly squandered an opportunity to right a terrible wrong.”
