Rav Amnon Yitzchak told participants in a shiur that Shas officials owe him 250,000 NIS since the party took discs from his Shofar organization and sold them, but he never received the money. He added that he has turned to Shas, the party’s former leader Eli Yishai, Yitzchak Vaknin, and sons of Maran HaGaon HaRav Ovadia Yosef ZT”L but no one is responding. Rav Yitzchak added that Maran HaGaon HaRav Ovadia Yosef ZT”L gave his personal guarantee the money would be repaid.
“f you are all so concerned with the rav’s kovod, why aren’t any of his sons paying the debt” asked Rav Amnon. “Go ask Rav Yitzchak Vaknin who knows the details and he will confirm the money is owed to me” he added.
