Statement on Malka Leifer

NCJWA welcomes the news that Malka Leifer will not be released under house arrest but will remain in a psychiatric facility until the Supreme Court judge further evaluates the evidence before making a final ruling next week.

It has been claimed that her detention was “humiliating” for Ms Leifer. It is the humiliation and hurt of her alleged victims that matters. They have a right to have their accusations heard in legal proceedings.

We call for the Israeli justice system to expedite the return of Ms Leifer to Australia to face charges of sexual abuse.
