Duma suspect says he confessed due to torture

The questioning of the main suspect in a deadly firebombing of a Palestinian family’s home in the West Bank was carried out legally and was well supervised, the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) said.

“This is a case that is being handled by the Central District behind closed doors, and therefore, in keeping with the limitations of the law, we cannot relate to the individual claims in here or verify them. With that, it can be noted that the investigation of the person in question was done in keeping with legal requirements and with the cooperation of all the relevant bodies,” the Shin Bet said in a statement.

The statement followed reports in Israeli media that quoted Amiram Ben-Uliel, 21, of Jerusalem as saying he confessed after he was tortured during questioning.
