Former Melbourne principal and alleged child sexual abuser to remain behind bars after appeal against releasing her to home arrest upheld
Former Melbourne school principal Malka Leifer, who is accused of child sex crimes, will remain behind bars after a successful appeal against her release to home detention in an Israeli court.
An Israeli judge had said Leifer could be released to home detention earlier this month after a rabbi offered to take care of her while she awaited an extradition outcome. But he later withdrew his support for Leifer to be released on house arrest days later.
