Lev Tahor sect denied right to appeal child-removal order

Quebec Superior Court has denied the ultra-Orthodox Jewish sect Lev Tahor the right to appeal a decision rendered last November, which ordered 14 children be returned to Quebec to be placed in youth protection services.

Justice Luc Lefebvre ruled that the 30-day period to file an appeal had not been respected, and therefore the judgement rendered could not longer be appealed under youth protection laws.
