Ta’ayush activists claim that even when complaints are backed up by photographs, the Judea and Samaria police do not pursue investigations against settlers.

A father and son from Netanya were accused of stabbing a resident of that city, and were only released after their defense counsel uncovered additional investigative material which refutes the claims made against them by the central witness. According to the defense counsel, Adv. Niva Nakache, she noticed that additional material was missing from the police recordings, but when she inquired with the police prosecutors about it, “they claimed that there was no additional material.” When she managed to obtain the missing material, she discovered that it refutes the testimony of the witness.
