The Immigration and Absorption Ministry has censored a landmark research report documenting the murder of women in Israel’s Ethiopian community. Ministry officials refused to release the report, claiming that it contained sensitive material that could violate people’s privacy. According to the report, “Both the families of the murderer and of the victim were … unsatisfied with the help they had been offered from external sources, including welfare organizations and professionals.” The minor children are taken care of by relatives, institutions and foster families.
