Last week on May 29th, Lev Tahor was in court again. This time it was to rule on the future of the two remaining girls who were placed in the custody of Chatham-Kent Children’s Services last March upon being returned to Canada from Trinidad. At the time, the girls were en route to Guatemala to join their parents, and their six siblings who were able to evade Canadian authorities.
Apparently these new proceedings were adjourned until early July.
The only article that I found about the case was written by Sarah Sachali of the Windsor Star who also sent a number tweets during the court proceedings. Based on her tweets, I saw the drama unfold like a production involving the Keystone Cops. One of her tweets was that the judge found out at the hearing that at least one of the children in question had left Canada, I presume without legal authorization.
Apparently, the child left Canada just a day after attempts were made to inform his/her parents of the hearing that was to take place on May 29th. As a result Justice Lucy Glenn was quoted as saying: “I cannot make orders about kids that are not in the jurisdiction. It’s as simple as that.” I can just see the Madame Justice throwing her hands up in the air while saying this.
This has to be frustrating for the legal system, child welfare officials, family of members who are trapped in the cult and by its pressures and doctrine, and the others who are concerned that these children are suffering abuse at the hands of its leader and his henchmen.
Sacheli goes on to make certain statements in her article which paints a picture of the cult’s modus operandi. Snippets from the article include statements such as: the CKCS lawyer trying to explain to the court why the agency had been unable to officially serve documents on parents, some of the parents involved in the new files have been deported, and ordering the surrender of passports.
The most ridiculous comment came from Marnelle Dragila, Lev Tahor’s own lawyer who urged the court not to judge the parents based on the fact that they are no longer in Canada. “There is a difference between flight and deportation”. Well in this case, it may have been both. Several were under deportation notices, and while under appeal some or all fled the country to evade the Canadian immigration process, or avoid the actual deportation.
In a previous post, I made reference to Avraham Kabaz Kashani, 39, Odel Malka, 30, and Yochanan Lauer, 19.
Kashani first came to Canada on a temporary resident visa in 2000, and made multiple attempts but failed to gain legal status. Once his avenues for appeal were exhausted, he was ordered out of the country in 2007. He did not leave voluntarily and never contacted authorities about his situation. He was arrested approximately 5 weeks ago. Guidi Mamman, one of Lev Tahor’s immigration lawyers referred to it as an immigration irregularity. The only type of irregularity that comes to mind are the references made to occasional bowel irregularity in various television commercials.
Apparently, Kashani did not leave in 2007 because his wife was expecting to give birth. That child is now 7 years of age and Kashani was still in Canada at the end of April of this year. From what I have heard, he has since been deported.
Another person, Odel Malka was ordered to leave in 2002, but only left in 2012. She then returned using a fake passport. From what I understand, Malka fled to Guatemala to avoid being deported.
I am just wondering when the legal system and everyone else for that matter will “wake up and smell the manure that is being repeatedly spread by Lev Tahor.
Based on their previous actions, I can only state that the cult, and especially their leader, Shlomo Helbrans, a self proclaimed rabbi are extremely deceitful. There are also strong allegation of physical and mental abuse by the leaders of the cult; especially with children suffering beatings, manipulation and other forms of physical abuse.
Members of the cult have purposely evaded the justice process not twice, but three times or more now.
They are not to be trusted. I repeat, they are not to be trusted. Based on their past behaviour, they will manipulate the process to defy the Canadian legal system and the laws of this country, and claim anti-Semitism and discrimination when they are caught, or are about to face justice.
