Dr. Colin Rubenstein, Executive Director of the Australia/Israel & Jewish Affairs Council said today, “AIJAC welcomes the decision by the Commonwealth Government to appeal the Federal Court's decision in the matter of the extradition of alleged murderer Charles Zentai to Hungary.

"After analysing the Federal Court verdict handed down last July, AIJAC came to the conclusion an appeal against the decision to release Mr. Zentai was warranted and that a number of aspects of the matter required further scrutiny. It is in the interests of justice and fairness that the charges against him be properly dealt with in a court of law.”

Dr. Rubenstein can be contacted for further comment on 03 9681 6660 or crubenstein@aijac.org.au or Jeremy Jones on 02 9360 5414.
