According to sources in London, (Rabbi) Chaim Halpern, along with three others, were arrested in the morning (Wednesday, Feb. 20) at his home in Golders Green. It seems that the good? Rabbi is an expert, not only in outing besulim, but he also tried to out the blogger IfYouTickleUs, an act that brought him down, since he was the first to go to the courts (mesirah). The Jewish Chronicle reported the arrest early in the morning lacking the name of the arrested, as per the law in the UKbut the others soon picked up the story in in its full glory. See the Times of Israel, בחדרי חרדים. One of my sources in London tells me, that when Halpern was readmitted to the UOHC, he had to sign a document that 1) He will not anymore counsel women, and, 2) That he will not anymore surf the Internet, you must remember, that he was the leading force behind the so called Asifas Klal Yisroel.
