The Jerusalem District Court on Monday approved the extradition of a former school principal wanted in Australia on charges of child sex abuse, following a six-year-long legal battle. Malka L. is accused of sexually abusing several former students. Lawyers said she would stand trial for 74 charges of child sex abuse against girls. The defendant was both a former teacher and principal at an ultra-Orthodox school in Melbourne, where she had emigrated to from her native Israel.
