Ilya Gordiyenko, an Ashdod resident, was assaulted by nine police officers after refusing to accompany them to the police station without being told what he was suspected of. The officers claimed that the suspect assaulted them, but a video of the arrest shows their version to be a lie. However, the judge refused to watch the video and extended Gordiyenko’s detention, who was later fully acquitted of all charges.
