Lev Tahor and border problems in Canada

Canadian Lawyer spoke about the case of Lev Tahor, most of whom already fled from Canada for Guatemala, and they tell something very depressing about the blatant lawyer who defended the cult:
When Mamann arrived at the airport, four children had been taken into protective custody, but he was able to arrange for the release of the parents. Mamann, who is himself Jewish and fairly observant, says he’s known many Haredi families and was skeptical the allegations against the group could be true. “What I could say is that at the very least there is great suspicion about this community and a tremendous lack of cultural knowledge and cultural sensitivity of this community,” he says. “There just simply was a lack of trust on both sides of the table. And of course, when you have that, you have people doing crazy things like running away.”
So because he's Jewish, he feels he must defend these warped cultists and thinks it's impossible for a Haredi to commit an offense. And how classic of him to use moral equivalence and say distrust tainted both sides. This is not the WW2 era, and the authorities in Quebec are not the fascists people of Helbrans' standing chose to ignore.
Lev Tahor arrived in Canada over a decade ago, settling in the Ste-Agathe -des-Monts area of Quebec. Like most Haredi communities, they eschewed the modern world, instead focusing on studying the Torah. Their fundamentalist leanings meant morning prayer lasted for hours, people spoke only Yiddish, and women and girls wore a chador-like garment in public, covering everything but the oval of their face.
I guess Mamann doesn't think there's anything abnormal for a woman to wear a chador in Judaism, does he?

There's more at the link, and I hope the Quebec administration stands firm on prohibiting the children remaining there to get passports, something one of the Jewish agencies investigating the case supports too. At the same time, an eye must be kept on the remaining members of the cult, lest the parents try to smuggle them out of the country over the borders to the USA.
