Brother of Barkan terrorist convicted

Wednesday, July 17, 2019, 15:48 On Wednesday, July 17, Judge Major Rinat Levi Moskowitz of the Shomron Military Court in Salem convicted Amjad Walid Suleiman Na’alwa, the brother of the Barkan terrorist, Ashraf Walid Suleiman Na’alwa, of failure to prevent possession of a weapon by his brother and of disrupting legal proceedings.
At the handing down of the verdict Judge Levi Moskowitz ruled that Amjad Na’alwa knew that his brother illegally possessed a weapon and that he did not act to prevent his continued possession of the weapon. Additionally the judge ruled that on the day of the attack Amjad Na’alwa instructed his wife to remove the memory cards from the security cameras in their house for the purpose of disrupting the legal proceedings against his brother. The court exonerated Amjad Na’alwa from the crime of failure to prevent the attack.
Honenu Attorney Chayim Bleicher, who is representing the families of Ziv Hajbi, Hy”d and Kim Levengrond-Yehezkel, Hy”d, and Rafi Levengrond, Kim’s father, were present at the handing down of the verdict.
Honenu Attorney Chayim Bleicher, who is representing the families and assisting them with realizing their rights as victims of terror, stated that, “The court ruled that the terrorist’s brother knew that he illegally possessed a weapon. A reasonable individual could foresee that the weapon would be used for terror as indeed occurred in the horrific attack. We are of the opinion that with the reality of terror in Israel being what it is, failure to prevent an attack is a crime whose penalization is of great importance with regards to preventing attacks and saving lives. In our opinion the court should have attributed to the terrorist’s brother direct responsibility for the attack which occurred, and convicted him of failure to prevent the attack.”
