Israel's Supreme Court overturns decision to release alleged paedophile Malka Leifer on bail

The Adass Israel School sex abuse scandal is a criminal case and extradition dispute regarding allegations of child sex abuse at a religious school in Melbourne, Australia. Victoria Police have laid 74 charges against a former principal, Malka Leifer, concerning conduct from 2003 to 2008. At least eight victims have come forward, and an investigation is ongoing. Leifer, a dual Israeli-Australian citizen, fled under suspicious circumstances shortly before a warrant could be issued, and she has remained in Israel and the West Bank since 2008, under varying levels of police and court supervision, pending the resolution of her extradition case. Allegations of further victims in the West Bank were made in June 2018.

The degree of freedom she has enjoyed in Israel has prompted worldwide media coverage and criticism of Israel's justice system; activist Manny Waks described the case as "a farce" and "an embarrassment". Leifer lived an apparently normal life for some time in the Israeli settlement of Emmanuel, despite a court ruling that she was mentally unfit for proceedings. Though she was eventually jailed after media and police scrutiny of her behavior, as of July 2019, despite more than 50 court hearings she has not been extradited.
