The Melbourne Magistrates Court heard that “the reports by medical professionals and counsellors had a legitimate forensic purpose in determining the alleged victim’s, Dassi Erlich’s, credibility and reliability”.

Malka Leifer was extradited from Israel to face 74 charges of child sexual abuse involving three sisters who attended the Adass Yisroel school at which Leifer had been principal.

A committal hearing is scheduled for next month.

    Here we go. How low can they go?! So, if a person might not have been in good health at the time of a sexual assault or abuse, or indeed any kind of violent act, does it mean there is no case to answer? One has to be healthy to be heard and taken seriously?
