NCJWA Vic commends the Israeli Supreme Court’s decision to extradite Malka Leifer to Australia to face 74 charges of sexual abuse.
This decision, to be enacted “without delay”, comes following years of hardship and heartbreak for the victims of her alleged abuse.
As highlighted by Judge Anat Alon in her decision, this case stands as a landmark - an important reminder that “anyone who seeks to escape himself... will not find a city of refuge in Israel”.
For years NCJWA Vic, together with the Australian Jewish community at large, has supported Dassi Erlich, Nicole Meyer and Elly Sapper in their brave and heroic acts. Their fight for justice reached the hearts and minds of the highest echelons of Australian and Israeli society.
