At the same time that some are attempting to whitewash the Lev Tahor saga, a Quebec Provincial Court has issued apprehension orders for all 128 Lev Tahor children.
Youth protection officials in Quebec tell BlackburnNews.com the orders were issued in November of 2013, after the group fled the province.
“Those orders have been transferred to the Chatham-Kent Children’s Services,” says Director of Communications for the Laurentian Youth Center Isabelle Dugre. “For the moment, we do not know what will be the action of CKCS regarding those orders.”
The group awaits a judge’s decision in an on-going custody case involving 14 children.
The children and their parents fled Chatham-Kent after an Ontario judge upheld a Quebec court order forcing them into foster care. Six are in Guatemala where they are reportedly seeking refugee status, six were apprehended in Trinidad and Tobago and another two were discovered at the Calgary International Airport. A 17-year-old girl has since been released from custody, but her infant child remains in foster care with a Jewish family near Toronto, as do the other children.
