Litzman to be Indicted for obstruction of justice, for blocking the extradition of an accused pedophile,


Charges against the Haredi minister relate to allegations he sought to block the extradition of  accused pedophile, Malka Lefer and sought to  prevent the closure of a deli cited for health violations

Israeli Housing Minister Yaakov Litzman (United Torah Judaism) will face charges in connection to two separate investigations, after Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit approved the preliminary indictment.

Mandelblit notified Litzman that he has signed off on the charge sheet; a necessary step for indicting an incumbent minister. A hearing must be held for the final indictment to be formally filed.

The preliminary indictment includes charges of obstruction of justice and breach of trust, and stems from two separate cases.

The first case relates to the disgraced former Australian educator Malka Leifer, who was extradited from Israel to Australia in January to face multiple counts of child sex abuse.

Leifer fled Australia in 2008, moving to Israel, where she was eventually found mentally unfit for extradition, before the case was reopened following the work of a private investigator who found evidence Leifer had faked her mental illness to escape extradition.

Litzman, who served as Deputy Health Minister (serving de facto as Health Minister) and later as Health Minister at the time, is suspected of taking improper steps to help Leifer obtain recommendations from mental health officials that she be deemed unfit to stand trial.

The second case revolves around accusations that as Health Minister, Litzman tried to help a delicatessen owned by a friend avoid forced closure over poor sanitary standards. The matter came to police attention after a pregnant woman who ate at the deli suffered a miscarriage, apparently as a result of a listeria infection in 2015, one of a number of bacterial infections reported at the deli.

“There are two cases which involve Minister Litzman apparently taking advantage of his position and governmental power in order to advance the interests of private individuals,” Mandelblit wrote, “during which he used his government power to back outside interest and against the interests of those he was tasked with serving as Deputy Health Minister.”

When Litzman & Frankel were growing up in Boro Park, they must've bumped into each other 100s of times, including in the Frankel family Judaica store.

Preaching to the choir is part of their job in this video.

If these schmos said the truth of what a sadistic bastard Yudi Frankel is when he leaves kids with no yeshiva, they would be terminated by big cheese Sruly Orzel.
