Likud MK calls for inquiry into police treatment of Ethiopians

Israel should open a parliamentary inquiry into police treatment of Ethiopian Israelis and immigrants  in general, MK Abraham Naguise (Likud) said Tuesday.

“The [Ethiopian-Israeli] community has lost  its faith in the establishment, and it could be that there is no reason not to hold a parliamentary inquiry into police violence against Ethiopian Israelis and immigrants in general,” Naguise said.

The Likud MK was speaking during a meeting of the Committee for Immigration, Absorption and Diaspora Affairs, held to discuss relations between police and Ethiopian-Israelis. The meeting was called after Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein announced Sunday that he had decided to close the case against a police officer caught on tape beating a soldier of Ethiopian-Israeli descent.
