Military Advocate General to submit new evidence in Zemora case
Wednesday, April 25, 2018, 13:13 On Wednesday, April 25 the Ofer Military Court accepted the request from the Military Advocate General to submit new evidence in the Nirit Zemora case, meaning that it is still possible that the terrorist will be convicted of attempted murder, the charge of which he had been exonerated two weeks previously . The new evidence is the minutes from the interrogations of the terrorist which the Military Advocate General received several days ago, during which the terrorist admitted his intent to murder Zemora. Honenu Attorney Chayim Bleicher, who is assisting Zemora with legal counsel, stated that, “We expect the military legal system to conduct a fair trial. We also expect the terrorist to be convicted of attempted murder at the conclusion of the proceedings. Additionally we call on the legal system to impose life sentences on terrorists, as military law dictates. Strong deterrents must be used against terror.” On the afternoon of Wednesday, April 25, the deliberation on the evidence itself began at the Ofer Military Court.
