Court acquits two confessed murderers due to police abuse of their rights

In one of the state’s most dramatic setbacks in a murder case, two Jalaiya residents, both self-confessed murderers, were acquitted on Sunday by the Lod District Court of murdering a Kfar Kassem minor in October 2009, due to police abuse of their rights and accusations of a cover-up.

The two confessed murderers were minors at the time, aged 16 and 17, so their names are still under a gag order.

In October 2009, the two confessed to opening fire on a bus traveling on a side road between Jalaiya and Kfar Kassem, killing Amjad Shuhana, 15, and wounding Suleiman Amar, apparently in response to a physical altercation among them.
