bargain tomorrow, Sunday, March 1, which will ease the sentence of the Bedouin illegal worker smuggler, Sa’id Al-Nabari, who killed Yinon Levanon, Hy”d, in a traffic accident. The Bedouin smuggled workers who did not have proper documentation over the Green Line.
On Sunday, February 10, 2013 Yinon Levanon, Hy”d, a resident of Susiya in the Har Hevron region, was killed in a traffic accident near the IDF checkpoint at Meitar. The Bedouin smuggler drove hazardously as he evaded a police car, crossed a solid white line and passed 10 vehicles, in the end colliding head-on with the car which Levanon drove. Yinon Levanon, Hy”d, was killed at the scene.
Currently, one week after a memorial service marking two years since the shocking incident, the Attorney General’s office intends to present an unusually lenient plea bargain for the prison sentence of Sa’id Al-Nabari, the Bedouin smuggler who killed Levanon.
The Attorney General’s office informed Levanon’s family that they would request a sentence of only 3.5 years, despite the fact that Al-Nabari will be convicted on a charge of killing which carries a sentence of up to 20 years in prison.
Honenu attorney Hur Uriel Nizri filed an appeal on behalf of Levanon’s family, however the Southern District Attorney rejected the appeal.
Tomorrow, Sunday, March 1, Levanon’s family will come to a deliberation which will take place at the Be’er Sheva District Court as part of their public campaign to increase the penalty on Yinon’s killer.
