THE wife of one of Australia’s most notorious paedophiles has launched a scathing attack on one of his victims, saying the nine-times child molester should never have been jailed.
The remorseless child predator is serving an eight-year prison term for molesting students at Yeshivah College over two decades.
But in a shocking defence of the paedophile, the man’s wife, who cannot be named, has publicly singled out a victim, naming him in online posts, and accusing him of making up allegations of abuse.
Victoria Police and the Office of Public Prosecutions have been made aware of the taunts.
It comes amid claims that victims of abuse from Yeshivah College are continuing to be bullied and intimidated for speaking out against the ultra-orthodox Jewish community.
The Herald Sun can reveal one victim has even been forced to take out an intervention order against a prominent community member over concerns of harassment.
The order, granted at the Melbourne Magistrates’ Court, has banned any contact between the victim and his family and their alleged tormentor.
The woman, who married the offender after he was charged with dozens of sex offences, said she was supportive of victims but stood by her social-media post, saying the particular victim had changed his story over time.
The Royal Commission into Institutional Child Sexual abuse exposed flaws in the Yeshivah community’s handling of abuse allegations.
