Ten months following his sentencing in a Japanese court, one of the three Bochrim imprisoned in a harsh Japanese prison, Yosef Banda is scheduled to arrive in Eretz Yisrael on Wednesday evening, (March 10th), where he will serve the remainder of his sentence, according to numerous reports.
The process of persuading Japanese officials to permit his extradition to Israel was not a simple one, one that involved the highest levels of government.
The Japanese court sentenced Yosef to 5 years imprisonment and a $40,000, and after calculating time served, he still has a bit over 18 months that will be completed in an Israeli prison.
According to reports, Israeli policemen are also going to accompany Banda on the flight to Israel.
No official government agency is willing to comment on the details of this report.
The tzibur is requested to continue including Yosef ben Ita Rivka, Yoel Zev ben Mirel Reesa Chava and Yaakov Yosef ben Raizel in tefillos.
