Palestinian human rights organization condemns acquittal of Israeli settler
Palestine, Politics, 8/18/1999
The Palestinian assembly for human rights announced yesterday that the decision of the Israeli government to declare a Jewish stettler to be innocent on the accusation of hitting a Palestinian boy, leading to the latter's death, relates to political motives which are against the law.
An Israeli court in Jerusalem judged yesterday that the Jewish settler is not responsible for the death of the Palestinian boy, Hemy Shusha, in the West Bank three years ago.
The Palestinian human rights assembly said it denounces and condemns this unfair decision that implies an obvious violation of the international declaration on human rights.
Palestinian eyewitnesses said at that time that the Jewish settler hit Shusha over his head with a pistol, leading to the boy's death in the hospital later on.
The judge refused the testimony of the eyewitnesses and the medical examiner, saying that the Palestinian child, who comes from a village near Bethlehem, died due to striking his head.
