Women’s rights groups condemned on Thursday the plea deal offered to Brig.-Gen. (res.) Ofek Buchris, who stands accused of sexual offenses against junior officers, and will likely face no jail time for his actions.
“The emerging plea agreement with Buchris is outrageous. The strong denials of Buchris have been revealed as nonsense, and here the revered officer admitted to past serious sexual offenses against his junior officers,” said Orit Sulitzeanu, chairwoman of the Association for Rape Crisis Centers in Israel.
