OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– An Israeli court on Tuesday sentenced a policeman to eight months in jail for killing a Palestinian Jerusalemite youth while handcuffed.
The policeman agreed with prosecution on confessing to the crime and that it was accidental in return for an eight-month imprisonment term.
The indictment list said that the policeman fired at the youth after arresting him on 14 September 2011. It claimed that the shot was accidently fired while an eyewitness testified that the policeman insulted the youth before shooting him.
Hazem Abul Dabaat was killed after detaining him along with his two friends Amjad Shahin and Mohammed Shuweiki in one of the Tel Aviv streets.
Both Shahin and Shuweiki said that the Israeli police stopped their car and asked for their IDs before an altercation took place and the policeman fired at their friend while handcuffed and sitting on the ground.
Abul Dabaat family charged that the sentence was racist, adding that it was a cold-blooded murder.
