To our shame, Israel is a molester haven. A prime example is Malka Leifer who fled Australia in 2008 on one day’s notice when she knew that the police were closing in on her. It is eleven years later, over 50 court hearings later, and yet the extradition process drags on.
Dassi Erlich is one of the survivors of Leifer’s sexual abuse of the girls in the Adaas school in Melbourne where Leifer was the principal. She persists in her struggle to bring Leifer to justice back in Australia. Dassi just posted an updated timeline of her long, frustrating search for justice on FaceBook of the 11 years since Leifer fled Australia and the 56 court hearings in Israel with resolution closer but definitely not there yet.
Thanks to the brave persistence of Dassi, her sisters, and their many supporters, Leifer will probably be delivered up for justice to Australian authorities. But no child molesting criminal should be able to evade justice so long.
Below, in all its excruciating and absurd detail, is the full timeline of the corrupt Israeli handling of the case.
