On April 13, RTL broadcast the big music event “Die Passion” – here the passion of Jesus was re-enacted and transported into the present with a host of stars and modern songs. As announced long ago, Gil Ofarim was also part of the cast of “Passion”. But the question arose online as to why the musician was still part of the production due to current events. We clarify.

What happens after the indictment by the prosecution?

At the end of March, the Leipzig public prosecutor filed a complaint against musician and actor Gil Ofarim. The 39-year-old is charged with false suspicion and defamation after claiming in October 2021 that an employee of the “Westin” hotel in Leipzig insulted him in an anti-Semitic way. At the end of March, the prosecutor’s office had however announced that the investigations against the hotel employee “had not led to sufficient suspicion”.

The regional court in Leipzig will decide in a few weeks whether to allow the proceedings against the musician. First, Gil Ofarim has an explanatory period during which the artist and his lawyers can comment. It is therefore not yet possible to predict whether or when a trial might take place.

Gil Ofarim is still part of the “Passion”

Gil Ofarim is presumed innocent until his conviction. That’s why the 39-year-old stayed in “La Passion”. The staging consisted, among other things, of feature films in which Gil Ofarim was seen as a disciple.
