Sunday, February 21, 2021, 12:06 On Israeli Memorial Day last year (April 28, 2020), Batya Lebel was viciously stabbed in a terror attack near the G Mall in K’far Saba. Today, at the Central District Court in Lod, Lebel will oppose a request by the terrorist’s attorney, and demand that the terrorist not be granted an opportunity for a mediation procedure with the State of Israel before a different judge, for the purpose of reaching a plea bargain. See here for more details about the attack. Honenu Attorney Chayim Bleicher, who is assisting Lebel with realizing her rights as a victim of terror and will be present at the hearing, stated: “A hearing in the trial of the terrorist who stabbed Batya Lebel is beginning now. The terrorist’s attorney has informed the prosecution that he will request a mediation procedure. The prosecution informed us that they will oppose the request. We arrived at the courthouse to make a statement opposing the request. There is no reason to be lenient in penalizing the terrorist and to reach a plea bargain. It is self-evident that the terrorist must be penalized to the full extent of the law and there are no grounds to relent and be lenient with his penalty. The terrorist specifically chose Memorial Day to stab a woman thirteen times. He should receive the most stringent penalty possible.”
