In October 2021, Gil Ofarim claimed that an employee of the “Westin” hotel in Leipzig had insulted him in an anti-Semitic way – he then filed a complaint. In late March, however, investigations against the employee were dropped because, contrary to Ofarim’s claims, there were not enough suspicions. The Leipzig public prosecutor’s office has now announced that the singer has not lodged a complaint against this – and that all investigations against the hotel employee are therefore definitely closed.

So says the Leipzig public prosecutor’s office

“The proceedings against the hotel employee were dismissed by order of March 31. Mr. Ofarim did not file a complaint, so the hiring is final.”the spokesperson said in a statement.

Briefly explained, this means that the 39-year-old and his lawyers allowed the time limit within which they should have defended themselves against the stay of proceedings to expire.
