Decision in Lev Tahor case expected in February
A court decision into a child services case involving the ultra-Orthodox Jewish sect Lev Tahor will come down in February.
A Chatham judge adjourned the case Friday, till Feb. 3 at 3 p.m. when a written decision is expected. CTV’s Chris Campbell was at the proceedings, where the lawyer representing Chatham-Kent Children’s Services made her final submissions.
The child service case involves 14 children belonging to Lev Tahor.
On Nov. 27, a Quebec court ordered the children into foster care, after the group fled to Ontario amid an investigation into alleged child neglect.
Approximately 40 families with Lev Tahor left Ste-Agathe-des-Monts, Que., and relocated to Chatham.
