The Tel-Aviv District Court handed a sentence of six months community service to Haim Mula who was convicted in the framework of a plea bargain of involvement in a molotov cocktail attack on the homes of asylum seekers in Tel-Aviv. The judge harshly criticized the prosecution, saying “the fact the plea bargain was reached due to lack of hard evidence was problematic. It is hard to understand how an indictment is served when there is such a shortage of evidence.” (Jerusalem Post)
