3 countries now dealing with Lev Tahor

The case as seen in Guatemala has, rather predictably, been stalling, because:
The Guatemalan court reportedly didn’t find sufficient evidence was presented by Canadian authorities to proceed with a removal order. The judge let the group keep their passports and requested the family visit the Canadian embassy within three days of the ruling. RCMP referred Interpol Canada requests to Guatemalan officials, who declined comment Friday. A Canadian Foreign Affairs spokesperson referred a Global News request regarding consular involvement to Doig.
This is sad the court in the Central American country isn't helping much, and if they're allowed to keep their passports, they could go on the lam again, and this time, what if they managed to make their way to an Islamic country, where the women would be considered suited to their mindset?

The Toronto Star says at least 3 countries are now dealing with this case, and:
Earlier this week, members of the ultra-orthodox Jewish sect used an attorney said to be one of the highest-priced in the area to fight for the chance to keep their children and stay in the country.
With the money they no doubt undeservedly got from donations that should not have been made, among other shady dealings. As I guessed, they would exploit legal systems in their efforts to defy justice, and that's shameful.
Nicholas Bala, a Queen’s University law professor who specializes in children’s law, said the Lev Tahor case is moving relatively quickly, saying Hague Convention cases in Canada can drag on for months, if not years.

He said it’s clear the judge in Guatemala found he did not have all the necessary information to make a decision Monday. He said it’s highly unlikely the family will get paperwork from the embassy allowing them to stay in the country.

“In fact, the embassy is going to provide contrary evidence, because presumably, the embassy has been on top of this,” he said.

Bala said it is a concern that the Lev Tahor members were allowed to keep their passports, given their past history of fleeing jurisdictions before court dates, but said it makes sense to allow the children to remain with their parents for now.

“Removing the children immediately from their parental care can be very intrusive,” he said. “Who would look after them? They don’t speak Spanish. It’s unlikely someone can be found quickly to care for them, other than their parents.”
Unfortunately, that's still taking a risk. What if the parents are abusive to the children during their stay in Guatemala? In which case, a translator should be found, either in Guatemala or from Canada, or even Israel, which should be involved in this affair too.
