Son of Senior Israeli officer granted gag order in death threat case
Tuesday November 22, 2011 08:45 by Saed Bannoura - 1 of International Middle East Media Center Editorial Group
An Israeli man whose father is a senior officer in the Shin Bet (secret service) was charged with issuing a death threat against members of an Israeli peace group. When the accused was brought before a judge, he requested a ‘gag order’ be issued in the case, preventing the peace group from engaging in further contact with the media about the incident.
The father of the accused was also present in the courtroom at the time of the arraignment, and shouted at journalists, “Do you know who I am?”, and told the journalists that they would be imprisoned if they revealed his son’s identity, then reiterated to the judge his son’s request for a gag order on the media. The judge granted the request, and the media have been prevented from reporting the suspect’s name or details on the incident.
