Malka Leifer is back in court, Down Under

The Australian Jewish News reported that the Haredi sex offender Leifer is now continuing to appear in court, this time in Oz:
THE “home life” of three of Malka Leifer’s alleged victims might be probed as her lawyers seek to test evidence against her, it was revealed when the former Adass Israel School principal made her second appearance in an Australian court to face charges of child sexual abuse.

Leifer, 54, who was extradited to Australia from Israel in January following a battle of more than six years, faces 74 charges relating to three alleged victims – Dassi Erlich, Nicole Meyer and Elly Sapper – during her time as principal of the Adass Israel School between 2001 and 2008.
I hope the attorneys are going to mind their manners when questioning the sisters, because the Israeli lawyers for Leifer didn't. It was an absolutely shoddy abomination how those defense lawyers behaved.
At an April 9 committal mention, the Melbourne Magistrates’ Court heard 10 witnesses would be called to test evidence against Leifer. Tony Hargreaves, Leifer’s lawyer, told the court, “Clearly the relationship that the three complainants had with their parents, in particular their mother, it would seem is the genesis for the relationship between the accused and the complainants,” adding Leifer’s counsel might wish to ask the witnesses about “what was happening at home with the complainants”. But he stated that such questions “will be limited and it may be that counsel chooses not to pursue that avenue”.
As one of the news columnists I'd linked to earlier said, the bizarre approach these insular ultra-Orthodox families operate, it's unlikely the parents would have believed what their daughters told them about the monster. Thankfully, Leifer's now already paying a heavy price for her deviations, and let's hope she gets a long sentence, and that it's in an overseas prison, where she belongs.
