During the trial it was revealed that the Internal Investigations Division has no written procedures regarding which cases are brought before the court and which are submitted to disciplinary action.

The police only informed the Jerusalem Magistrates’ Court that the finger print it has is different from that of the person suspected of stabbing an attorney in that city a full two days after an indictment was filed against the suspect. This being the case, the judge instructed that the suspect, Taryk Ben Ziad, be released from detention.
