bs"d

UPDATE: PROTEST Of ALLEGED TORTURE OF DUMA SUSPECTS 
THE GOVERNMENT MAY THINK IT'S OVER..... BUT IT'S JUST STARTING!!! 
DON'T LET THE GOVERNMENT GET AWAY WITH TORTURE!!! 
THEY ARE COUNTING ON YOUR SILENCE AND YOUR GOING BACK TO YOUR DAILY ROUTINE.
SURPRISE THEM!!!  
AL TIDOM!!! DO NOT BE SILENT!!!! 

The Shabak interrogations of the Duma suspects are over. A few suspects have confessed to various crimes after weeks of alleged non stop torture. They will now be brought to trial for serious charges including murder, facing life in prison. But the struggle for clarification of what happened in the Shabak interrogation chambers is only beginning. 

The Shabak and the Courts have just issued an official decision prohibiting the publication of the details of the interrogation and torture methods they implemented during the investigation. 

It is time for all who believe that Israel is a democracy to publicly protest the government's transparent attempt at cover-up and to demand a full independent investigation of what happened to the Duma suspects in the Shabak headquarters. This is a struggle for justice for the suspects, and a struggle for the democratic, moral and ethical soul of the state of Israel.  

Among distinguished public figures who are demanding an independent inquiry is Rabbi Aryeh Stern, shlita, Chief Rabbi of Jerusalem.  

Protest This Motzaei Shabbat in Ramot

There will be a protest this Motzaei Shabbat, January 9, outside the home of Yoram Cohen, head of the Shabak. Protestors will demand transparency regarding the interrogation methods used in the Duma interrogations. Bring signs" What Are You Hiding?" 

Address of the protest is:  Rechov Yigal Alon  corner Hachoresh Street, Ramot, Jerusalem 

ORGANIZE OFFICIAL BODY TO DEMAND INVESTIGATION

There is a need for an organized group to spearhead the demand for an investigation of the interrogation methods. A group called Meshilut already working on organizing such a campaign. See their website at www.meshilut.org

WRITE TO GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS

Everyone is encouraged to write to government officials demanding that the state of Israel conduct an investigation of the methods they used to extract confessions before trying the suspects in court. According to David Bedein,  "The Israel official who oversees all Shabak policies is the prime minister of Israel. Send him a short, reasonable letter. Best place to write to Benjamin Netanyahu is: media@pmo.gov.il.

A list of all government officials including President Rivlin, Attorney General Weinstein and members of the Supreme Court to follow.

The Chief Rabbi of Jerusalem, Rabbi Aryeh Stern, has called for an 'independent inquiry' to ascertain the claims made that Israeli Security Agency (ISA, also known as the Shin Bet or Shabak) tortured suspects in the Duma arson case.

According to the suspects' lawyers, their clients' confessions were elicited by torture and therefore invalid as evidence.

Rabbi Stern met with family members of the suspects, some of whom were released after it was discovered that they had nothing to do with actions in Duma. However, in spite of their innocence, they claim to have undergone very harsh interrogation tactics.   

Rabbi Stern listened to the claims of what their family members went though. During the meetings a member of the legal defense organization Honenu, which is representing the suspects, was present.

Rabbi Stern received testimony and saw documents that outline what the suspects endured. He concluded by saying: "I am very worried by these allegations that torture was used against the accused in the Duma affair. It would be prudent to conduct an independent and unbiased investigation that will clarify whether or not everything that was done, was done according to the law
