Israeli rabbi revokes Malka Leifer support


An Israeli rabbi has withdrawn his support for former Melbourne school principal and accused child abuser Malka Leifer to be released on house arrest under his supervision.

Victorian police are seeking the extradition of the 54-year-old, who was arrested in Israel in February, to Australia to face 74 charges of child sexual abuse.

Rabbi Yitzchak Dovid Grossman had offered to take care of Leifer if she’s granted home detention by Israel’s Supreme Court.

“Last night, I notified the courts that I am completely withdrawing my involvement in the case of Malka Leifer, and my recommendation that she be placed under house arrest with my supervision,” Rabbi Grossman said in a statement released on Monday.
