I’ve heard something very different about this story that turns the whole story on its head. Apparently Zalman Silber’s ex-wife had for some years been threatening to make trouble for him if he didn’t give her more money.

About 7 years ago one of his companies was involved in testing a scheme to provide cheap life insurance which involved having only a blood pressure check instead of a full medical exam. It involved an employee (not Zalman Silber) taking the blood pressure of 150 people (who signed consent forms).

He had sold a business for several million dollars and his ex-wife through a friend who knew some of the participants in the life insurance testing scheme, suggested to them that there was money to be made by alleging that they were abused during their participation. What is being referred to really involves the employee that took the participants blood pressure.

Zalman Silber has never claimed to be a gynaecologist, but is a qualified medic. However since this doesn’t involve him but his employee, why didn’t he tell the police that this was a case of mistaken identity? It seems among Hassidic Jews they are not allowed to ‘tell’ on each other. So that when his ex-wife called the cops he has kept quiet and not said anything. Apparently he also wouldn’t tell on his ex-wife for similar reasons. So far from being a villainous pervert he may actually be a saint.

Meanwhile what will happen to the guy that actually took the blood pressure or did the examinations? The women who were claiming he pretended to be a gynaecologist didn’t recognise Zalman Silber in a line-up - the question is would they chose the employee in a similar line-up and would the fact that his ex-wife is the informant not make the police suspicious of her motivation?

Knowing that he is a wealthy man may tempt other participants to try and make a fast buck by claiming that they were sexually abused whilst their blood pressure was being taken.

FOR ALL THOSE PEOPLE PUT THERE THAT THINK THEY KNOW WHAT THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT REGRADING ZALMAN SILBER IN FACT DO NOT HAVE A CLUE. NO BLOOD PRESSURE WAS TAKEN SO THE PRIOR POST HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH ANYTHING AND HIS EX- WIFE WAS NOT THE INFORMANT. SO FOR ANYONE THAT READS THIS- PLEASE THINK BEFORE YOU MAKE UP STORIES AS TO WHAT IS REALLY HAPPENING. IN REALITY YOU REALLY DO NOT KNOW WHAT HAPPENED AT ALL, BUT I AM SURE THAT IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WUITH MONEY. IN FACT, NOT ONE ARTICLE EVEN MENTIONS THAT THESE WOMEN ARE OUT FOR THE MONEY.THE PEOPLE ACTUALLY INVOLVED WITH THIS SEXUAL ABUSE ARE FOREVER SCARRED AND WILL HAVE TO LIVE WITH THIS FOR THE REST OF THERE LIVES!

The story that tea4two tells is the truth. This situation came about because of money. Not from the "victims" but from his ex-wife who promised to make trouble if he didn't settle a particular debt of hers. He refused and here we are. I agree with hhhhhhhh go find a different story to pick on. The truth will be shown to us all in time through the court system.
