Paedophile who hid in Stamford Hill jailed

Nachman Stal has been jailed in Israel for 13 years for raping a teenage boy, after which he fled to London and hid in Stamford Hill for two years.

    A paedophile who fled to London to escape justice in Israel has been jailed for 13 years for raping a teenage boy.

    Nachman Stal lived secretly among the Charedi community in Stamford Hill, north London.

    He had left Israel in 2006 after being found guilty of sodomy and indecent assault of a minor.

    The father-of-nine was only recaptured by chance in May 2008 when police stopped to help him change a punctured tyre in west London.

    After he was extradited last June, members of the Stamford Hill community appealed for money to support his wife and children, who also returned to Israel.

    On Sunday, Tel Aviv District Court sentenced him to 12 years’ imprisonment, with an additional year added to the term for his evasion of justice. Judges severely criticised London rabbis who aided him.

    Stal was also ordered to pay his victim NIS 50,000 [£8,830] in compensation.
