Lev Tahor members ordered deported to Israel


Three members of the haredi Orthodox sect Lev Tahor have been ordered deported to their native Israel.


The three have been held in detention since April 2, when officials of the Canada Border Services Agency raided the Lev Tahor compound in Chatham, Ont., about three hours from Toronto, and arrested six sect members over suspected immigration issues.


An official of Canada’s Immigration and Refugee Board ruled Friday that the three sect members with Israeli citizenship will remain in custody until they can be deported to Israel.
