He explained to the media they began beating him up so badly that “I began seeing black stars around my eyes”.
Koenig accuses a fellow guest at the chasenah of throwing him to the ground and then beating him during the chasenah held at Yeshiva Torah V’Yirah.
“This is the first time in my life I am coming out in public because I suffered so much in my life from these extremes” adds Koenig.
