One of the 12 alleged victims of sexual abuse at Melbourne’s Yeshiva College asked Melbourne’s Magistrates’ Court to have his name published in the media…but his request was declined.

David Cyprys has been charged with 53 counts of gross indecency of a person under 16, indecent assault, false imprisonment, rape, common law assault and attempted indecent assault.

The victim who wanted his name and evidence revealed is a well-known community leader and said that he hoped that by doing so it would encourage other victims to come forward.

In denying his request magistrate Luisa Bazzini said that she had never experienced  an enquiry like that in her career.

The case is being heard in a closed court.

Cypres was a security guard at the college at the time of the alleged assaults.

    When this Inquirey begins…….
    I wonder why the Magistrate denied the request?
    Anyone viewing last nights ABC programme would understand the corruption and power of the church, not yours, mine with similiar cases well recorded in Australia.
