Lev Tahor sect members on the run sent back to Canada
Ultra-orthodox Jewish sect has been under investigation for its treatment of children
Nine members of the ultra-orthodox Jewish sect Lev Tahor who fled Canada earlier this week have been put on a plane to Toronto, CBC has learned.
The members, three adults and six children, left just before a judge was to rule on an appeal of an order to send 13 children into foster care in Quebec.
They were detained in Trinidad and Tobago.
The community has denied all allegations of mistreatment.
It's believed other members subject to the order have fled to Guatemala. The nine who were detained in Trinidad had planned to legally challenge any attempt to send them back to Canada.
