Confiscated weapon returned to assaulted soldier

Wednesday, August 24, 2016, 12:32 The police returned the personal weapon confiscated from the soldier who was assaulted by Arabs in Acco on Monday, August 22. Honenu is representing the soldier.
The soldier was enjoying a day at the beach in Acco with his family when a group of Arabs approached them and tried to push the soldier and one of his relatives off of a 12-meter high wall into the sea. The soldier perceived a definite danger to his life, drew his personal weapon and held it close to his body.
Policemen who arrived on the scene detained the soldier, brought him to the police station for interrogation and confiscated his personal weapon. He was released the same day and the following day was summoned to the station. His personal weapon was returned to him after he gave testimony to the police stating that he acted in response to the life-threatening situation.
Honenu Attorney Adi Kedar, who is representing the soldier, welcomed the decision to return the soldier’s personal weapon to him and called on the police to detain the Arab assailants: “I am pleased that the police returned the soldier’s weapon after accepting his testimony that he was assaulted and acted in self defense. I call on the police to close the investigative case that was opened against him and to arrest the Arab assailants who belong behind bars.”
