Manny Waks whose association Kol V’Oz works to expose child sexual abuse across the world Jewish community said: “We are in the process of finalising additional details but at this stage, Ms Fleur Hasan, Deputy Mayor of Jerusalem, will speak. I will MC the event. We anticipate there will be other speakers as well.

This protest is to show public support to the three sisters. It is also to send a public message that we expect justice to prevail. This is not a political protest.”

Leifer is currently in custody and her legal team claim she is unfit to face court for psychiatric reasons.

Israeli Deputy Health Minister Ya’acov Litzman is being questioned by police last month he has been aiding Leifer’s defence by being involved in favourable assessments.

The public protest will the Jerusalem District Court during the next Malka Leifer hearing, which is scheduled for Wednesday 13 March 2019 8:30am-1pm. The public protest will commence at 12:30pm.

The number of hearing for extradition case is approaching 50.
