More Israeli Democracy

The state prosecution demanded unprecedentedly harsh punishment in a charge sheet against six minor girls who demonstrated outside the home of former Yehudah and Shomron (Judea and Samaria) Division Commander Maj.-Gen. Noam Tibon.

According to the charge sheet, the six girls were guilty of “insulting a public servant” and “invading the privacy” of Tibon -- charges that are rarely punished with actual jail time. Yet the state prosecution demands that the minor girls be incarcerated.

Attorney Chaim Cohen, who represents one of the girls, has filed a request to the President of the Magistrates' Court for Youth in Tel Aviv, Judge Galit Mor-Vigotsky, to annul the charge sheet.
