Wednesday, November 3, 2021, 17:12 On the afternoon of Wednesday, November 3, several demonstrators, among them Ahuvia Sandak's fiancée, Shalhevet Goldstein, arrived at the Justice Ministry on Salah a-Din Street in Jerusalem. Shortly before five o'clock, there were initial reports of clashes between several demonstrators and security guards at the entrance to the ministry. The guards prevented the demonstrators from entering the grounds.
The demonstrators hung signs on the fence calling for the policemen involved with the death of Ahuvia to be put on trial. They also hung an invitation announcing the wedding of Ahuvia, z"l, and Shalhevet, that will "take place on the anniversary of the death of the groom, the sixth of Shevat, at the Kfar Etzion Cemetery".
An additional sign hung at the site referring to the cover-up of the investigation into Ahuvia's death read: "Abbas is coddled. Ahuvia is whitewashed. Mandelblit, file an indictment today".
In the coming days, Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit is expected to finalize the decision regarding whether or not the policemen involved with Ahuvia Sandak’s death will be put on trial.
At 20:30 on Thursday, November 4, Ahuvia Sandak's parents and a crowd of supporters are expected to protest at the String Bridge in Jerusalem in a demand to put the policemen who caused Ahuvia's death on trial.
