Child sexual abuse advocate Manny Waks said: “I’m pleased that Israel is taking this issue seriously and prosecuting Litzman for his alleged involvement in the Malka Leifer scandal.

Leifer was extradited to Australia to face 74 charges of child sexual abuse in Melbourne. She is currently incarcerated in a women’s prison in Victoria.
