David Kramer will be released from a Missouri prison later this month…but efforts are underway to have him extradited to Melbourne. Kramer is yet to be charged with offences relating to alleged sexual abuse at Melbourne’s Yeshivah College.

J-Wire spoke to one of Kramer’s legal representatives who questioned the passing of time between the alleged offences and Kramer’s release. He said: “He is due for release in a couple of weeks. I have handled some civil matters for him. I believe the statute of limitations in Missouri is 20 years so I don’t know if they will be able to extradite him from this State. If there is an extradition order it will have to litigated.” The lawyer questioned if the there were still witnesses. Last year, Victorian Police mounted a campaign requesting people with information to step forward. It was very successful.

In the meantime, former Yeshiva student Manny Waks who was not abused by Kramer but states he was the victim of other perpetrators at the Yeshiva, told J-Wire: ““Yeshivah’s complicity in these sexual crimes against so many children by numerous perpetrators is becoming increasingly clear. Many of the former victims are looking forward to fully exposing this immoral behavior by an apparently religious institution and bringing them to full account.

Yeshivah has been given sufficient opportunities to at least partially redeem themselves but they have neglected to take any appropriate action whatsoever. Worse, their immoral approach has in fact increased the pain of many of the victims. We will therefore be holding them to full account.”

Community members believe Kramer was spirited away by Yeshivah officials in 1993…but he offended again.

Today’s Yeshivah leadership have announced that given the same circumstances they would co-operate with the police.

A member of the Victorian Sexual Crimes Squad told J-Wire: “A suspect can be extradited without charges and charges could follow after questioning.”

    No fear whatsoever of political correctness for you.
    When one considers the NGO’s politicians and human right advocates who remained silent when so many other children of Recognised Denominations were crying in the dark; dozens in Victoria alone who committed suicide. My heart goes out especially to the families who today, continue to seek justice.
