Testimony by Nechemya Weberman will continue today, Thursday, Dec 6. There is talk of evidence stage ending today and attorneys for both sides making their closing statements.
My overall impression is that the trial is going very badly for Weberman.
On Wednesday, for the first time he had about 20 supporters in the courtroom instead of the usual 5 but they were all his own family. I am developing the suspicion that the Satmar establishment is cutting him loose and cutting their losses. They will of course continue to insist he is innocent because they want to uphold the ban on cooperating with civil authorities and want to keep conditioning their members to always disbelieve any outside charges. But I suspect even their rather shameful leadership is beginning to grasp that he is an embarassing goner. Besides any of their members attending the trial will be exposed to more objective evidence of his guilt.
