ABC has published in its Corrections and Clarification despatch that the broadcaster accepts Rabbi Feldman was aware it is illegal for an adult to touch a child’s genitals.

The ABC published statement:

Rabbi Yosef Feldman at the Commission

In 2015, Rabbi Feldman gave evidence at the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse and was asked by Counsel Assisting whether he understood it was against the law for an adult to touch the genitals of another child. The ABC accepts that Rabbi Feldman was aware that it was against the law to touch the genitals of a child for sexual purposes and the ABC did not intend to convey any meaning or imputation that Rabbi Feldman was ignorant of the fact that it was against the law to touch the genitals of a child sexually.

Rabbi Feldman told J-Wire: “I have settled with ABC. It’s a great confidential settlement.”
