Slippery Slope

Notes From a Crumbling Democracy

Internal Security: February 26, 2013

The Tel Aviv Magistrate’s Court acquitted Tuesday morning three young Arab women and a young Arab man of the offenses of participating in an illegal assembly, causing a disturbance and assaulting police officers, during a demonstration against Operation Cast Lead in 2008. In his verdict, Judge Ido Druyan strongly criticized the police and prosecution, saying there was no fear of a disturbance during the gathering and “certainly there was no justification for the hasty and sloppy submission of this failed indictment.” Druyan ordered the verdict be passed on to senior officers in the Tel Aviv district and countrywide in order for them to learn a lesson from the affair. (Haaretz)
