Police, Officials Sued over Infanticide

Abir Dandis, whose infant daughters were allegedly murdered by their father, a month ago, filed a million-shekel civil suit, Thursday, in the Be'er Sheva' District Court against the father, the police and Public Security Minister Yitzchak Aharonovitch.

Serious failures by the police in handling complaints by the mother about violence by her husband were discovered following the murders. Nothing was done despite her warning that he would kill his daughters. A number of officers from the Arad police station were dismissed as a result.
