Lod district court has completely justified Azzedine Nashata after he spent 4.5 years in prison on charges of the murder of Yousef Jumah.
Azzedin Nasaf was convicted on the basis of witness testimony that after the murder, which occurred in 2013 in Taibe, first claimed not to have seen the gunman, and several days later changed his version, stating Naafa and saying that he had a protracted conflict with the deceased.
The radio station Galei Tzahal reported that the charges were dropped with Naafa after his defense gave the court a convincing proof of his innocence. In particular, judges were presented with a video surveillance camera after a minute and a half after the murder. In this video Azzedin Nasaf dressed differently than the killer, and the brand of his car matches the make of car murderers.
In the comments of the Prosecutor, which results in the website Reshet.tv said that the indictment against Azzedine Naafa was based on the testimony of a witness who confided in the result. The Prosecutor said that the court decision will be studied carefully.
