Statement on Leifer extradition hearing

20 July 2020

Zionist Federation of Australia President Jeremy Leibler welcomed the commencement of Malka Leifer’s extradition hearing but expressed concerned that the decision would not be made for two months.

“For too long Leifer’s alleged victims have had to wait to see her face justice”, said Mr Leibler. “This extradition hearing took far too long come about. We are extremely disappointed that the judge will not make a decision for two months.”

“We stand with Dassi, Elly and Nicole. Throughout this process they have exemplified dignity and courage. The appalling treatment meted out to them today by Leifer’s legal team was shameful.”
