The Melbourne Chabad child sex abuse scandal just gets worse as another community leader reportedly fails to cooperate with police.
Reuven Tatarka was the head of Lubavitch Youth in Melbourne at the time many of the alleged child rapes and child sexual assaults allegedly committed by David Cyprys at or near Chabad's Yeshiva College took place.
Police asked Tatarka to cooperate with the investigation into these horrific crimes.
But I'm told that Tatarka refused to cooperate in any way.
A courtroom observer told me that the lead police investigator on this case singled out Tatarka in court as someone who refused to answer even the simplest questions or to cooperate.
As head of Lubavitch Youth, Tatarka was also the head of Chabad's camps in Melbourne and ran programs that Cyprys had full access to.
Should Tatarka be allowed to hold any position of communal authority?
My source doesn't think so.
