      2 Haifa Police Officers Indicted for Negligence


      The Internal Affairs Department of the police has submitted two indictments against officers who were assigned to supervise the custody of a suspect who was assessed psychiatrically to require constant observation. Despite strict regulations, the officers neglected to remove his belt and did not check the cell video monitors every fifteen minutes as required. Consequently, the suspect hanged himself, and the officers were indicted for negligence that led to his death.
