Malka Leifer found mentally fit to stand trial for her sex offenses

Finally, the panel tasked with examining the Haredi child molestor Malka Leifer has determined her to be mentally fit for standing trial:
A psychiatric panel on Thursday decided that alleged sex offender Malka Leifer from Australia is mentally fit to stand trial and has been feigning mental illness.

In the coming days, the Jerusalem District Court will determine whether to extradite her back to her country, where she is wanted for sex offenses. [...]

The panel’s decision that Leifer is mentally fit for trial follows nearly six years of legal proceedings against the alleged offender.

Leifer, a former Ultra-Orthodox girls’ school principal, is charged in Australia with dozens of cases of child abuse. She fled to Israel in 2008 following allegations that she had sexually abused students at the Adass Yisroel school in Melbourne on 74 different occasions.

Nicole, Dassi and Elly Erlich, three sisters who were Leifer’s victims, issued a statement commending the panel on its decision after the long legal proceedings in Leifer’s case.

“We cannot believe this day has come!!! Incredible news!! We knew this all along! Such a long wait! Justice has come!!” They wrote.

Victims’ rights advocate Manny Waks called the panel’s decision a “monumental development.”

“This is a monumental development in this prolonged case. It seems that finally justice will prevail. We are delighted for the three courageous sisters, Nicole, Dassi & Elly,” he said.

“We will continue to do all that we can to ensure Leifer is put on a plane back to Australia as soon as possible so that she can stand trial for the 74 charges of rape and sexual assault against the three sisters,” he added.
And she better be sent back. Leifer doesn't belong in Israel, and did her damndest to ensure she doesn't deserve to be here. Why, she doesn't even deserve kosher meals if she committed such abominations. I'm glad a decision was finally reached, and the court better honor it. I too wish to congratulate the 3 sisters for their efforts to ensure Leifer would be brought to justice. This should also serve as an example for why Haredis from insular communities who commit repulsive offenses cannot be allowed privileged statuses that enable them to evade justice.
