Court rules Malka Leifer can be extradited back Down Under

We're hopefully nearing the end of a most unfortunately protracted legal saga, as the Jerusalem court's ruled Haredi child molestor Malka Leifer can be extradited back to Australia:
After six years of court proceedings, the Jerusalem District Court finally ruled today (Monday) to extradite suspected sex offender Malka Leifer to Australia where she is wanted on 74 charges of sexual abuse and rape of minors.

The ruling is another major milestone in a case that has been beset by alleged political interference and highly unusual legal claims about mental competence for extradition, which has severely delayed the extradition process.

Leifer can now appeal the extradition decision to the Supreme Court. If the court rejects the appeal, the justice minister can then sign off on the extradition, a decision which can also be appealed to the Supreme Court.

Should the court reject that appeal, Leifer will be extradited to Australia.
And let's hope the supreme court does reject any appeal filed, which her disgraceful lawyers, relatives and clan-based gurus who've been bankrolling them are likely to do, no doubt in order to undermine Israel's reputation overseas, among other twisted beliefs. The Tzohar organization, which has ideally been campaigning for Leifer's extradition, said the following:
The Tzohar Rabbinical Organization hailed a decision Monday by a Jerusalem court to approve the extradition of accused child molester Malka Leifer.

In a statement released by Tzohar, Rabbi David Stav, chairman of the organization, called the decision by the Jerusalem District Court Monday to back Leifer’s extradition a “critical step” in combating sexual abuse.

“Today’s decision is a critical step in addressing the impression that religious figures can never turn a blind eye to the pain of victims of sexual abuse. The efforts to keep Malka Leifer in Israel and away from an Australian court were nothing less than a desecration of God’s name and a stain on our country’s reputation for pursuing justice, so we can all hope she will now be held accountable for her alleged actions.”


Rabbi Yuval Cherlow, who as Director of the Tzohar Center for Jewish Ethics has also written extensively about the case said, "Israel must never become a refuge for sexual abusers. We need to always act in partnership with all other nations in ensuring that these criminals are being brought to justice. Anything less would be gross negligence and is a failure for our national responsibility to act morally and ethically.”
Wise words indeed. What Leifer and company have done is a disparagement of the Judaist religion, and cannot be tolerated by any sect, Orthodox or otherwise. The law is going to have be modified in this country to ensure sex offenders can't exploit the Law of Return to escape justice overseas, and those who commit crimes that severe are those who definitely must be exiled.

I wonder if Leifer will try to claim she's infected with Coronavirus if that's what it takes to further avoid extradition? That'd only be all the more reason to put her on the plane back to Oz, so let's hope the authorities get ready to do just that.
