New South Wales police are investigating accusations of abuse from as far back as the 1970s, allegedly committed by two people who are now connected to local Jewish school the Yeshiva Center in Bondi, the Sidney Morning Herald reported on Thursday.

This story broke down under just as local papers reported that Israel's mysterious prisoner-X was himself a member of the local Jewish community.According to the Australian Jewish News, while there have been cases of abuse investigated in Melbourne, this is the first time that such an investigation has occurred in Sydney.

The Jewish newspaper noted that while in previous years Jewish leaders had covered up abuse, in one case sending a Rabbi to Israel when accused, Australian Jewish leaders have now come forward in “unequivocally condemning abuse.”
