ZFA statement on ruling Malka Leifer is fit to stand extradition trial

ZFA President Jeremy Leibler said:

‘This is a welcome and meaningful step, if much delayed. That said, it is likely that Leifer’s lawyers will appeal this decision, meaning we are still not at a point where the extradition trial can commence. We continue to urge the Israeli judicial system to expedite matters. Leifer has been credibly accused of serious crimes and must face trial. The Australian Jewish community stands shoulder to shoulder with the victims of Leifer’s alleged abuse’
