France to Investigate Shalit Case

A French court for criminal investigations will appoint two judges to investigate the kidnapping of IDF soldier Gilad Shalit, according to Reshet Bet. The report follows a complaint by the Shalit family calling on France to open an investigation into crimes against Shalit due to his status as a French citizen.

Among the crimes that will be investigated are kidnapping, imprisonment, and torture. The judges are expected to call Shalit's parents to France to give testimony.
