Sunday, August 13, the Committee of the inhabitants of the Bedouin village Umm El-Hiran, commented on the decision, according to which the police officers involved in the incident in the village, did not appear before the court. Decided the Department of justice to investigate crimes committed by police officers (MAKHASH).
According to the residents of Umm El-Hiran, the decision «should disturb every resident and citizen of Israel, and to deprive us all of sleep.»
We will remind, on January 18 of this year in the riots that broke out in the village during the demolition of illegal buildings, killed 47-year-old Yacoub al-Kian and 34-the summer ensign of police special forces (YASAM) Erez levy.
Al-Kian was driving the car that hit two police officers. As a result of collision killed warrant officer Erez levy. Law enforcement officials claimed that levy was killed in the attack.
However, the result was checked another version, according to which the police and soldiers opened fire on the car before the driver sped off. According to this version, al-Kian could not prevent the collision, since due to a hole in the knee of his foot rested on the gas pedal, which led to the increase in vehicle speed and accidents.
As reported in the media version of events presented by the police was confirmed by the evidence from the scene. During the investigation, in Makhash no suspicion that the police had committed a criminal offence.
