High Court to Railroad: Give Police 2005 Accident Files


By a vote of 5-2, an expanded panel of the Supreme Court ordered Israel Railways, Monday, to give the police the reports on its internal investigation of two fatal accidents from the year 2005, in which eight people were killed and many others were injured. Railroad management had refused to give its files to investigators.

In their ruling, the judges determined that there was no justification in denying the police the report at this stage of the criminal investigation.
