The Jury in the longest running slander case in British history, Brian Maccaba vs. Dayan Yaakov Lichtenstein, has finally returned its verdict. Dayan Lichtenstein has been cleared of spreading allegations that Maccaba, an Irish-born multi-millionaire who converted to Judaism in 1990, was a "sexual predator" and "serial adulterer." The main defence claim was that Maccaba "offered family friend Alain Attar one million dollars for his wife Nathalie and twice sexually harassed her."
According to The Scotsman, "Mr Maccaba, a twice-married father of six, from Hendon, north London, who is chief executive officer and founder of international technology company Cognotec, showed no emotion except to raise one eyebrow."
Oh well; that's the end of months of gossip and excitement. At least we still have Yvonne Sherrington to keep us amused.
