ZFA statement on Malka Leifer case

President of the Zionist Federation of Australia, Dr. Danny Lamm AM responded to the news that the decision to grant Malka Leifer bail has been reversed.

“It was very distressing to hear that Malka Leifer had been granted bail, so I welcome the news that this has now been reversed and her extradition hearing will take place later this month.

Israel’s court system adheres to and recognises the principles of the rule of law. The ZFA nevertheless remains appalled that Leifer and those around her continue to block extradition proceedings to ensure that she faces her day in court in this country.

My heart goes out to the victims who suffered abuse at her hands and are no doubt being subjected to further suffering the longer this ordeal gets drawn out.”
