See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The Religious Council of Iraquian Jews has announced its decision to remove from his post Chief Rabbi Yehezkiel Ezra Sasson Kaduri.

The Rabbi, the announcement states, has been adjudged unfit to continue in office and has therefore been deprived of his title and the right to give judgments in religious matters.
