More Lev Tahor kids returning to parents, leaving two kids in care

CHATHAM, Ont. - Another four children from an ultra-orthodox Jewish sect are being returned to their parents, leaving two kids in care.

Lawyers for Lev Tahor and Chatham-Kent Children's Services came to an agreement Wednesday, though the conditions remain secret.

The four children were placed in Jewish foster homes in the Toronto area after being apprehended two months ago in Trinidad and Tobago, where their family fled after a judge ruled 14 children in the community would be sent back to Quebec and placed in foster care.

Another family fled to Guatemala, where six children remain, and a 17-year-old mother and her baby who fled to Calgary have since returned to the community in Chatham.

Lev Tahor was the subject of a youth protection investigation in Quebec before they fled to Chatham late last year.

A ruling on May 29 will decide the fate of the two other children who were also discovered in Trinidad and Tobago and who remain in custody.

Lev Tahor continues to deny all allegations of underage and forced marriages, abuse and neglect.
