Sentences Shortened for Police in Negligent Death

The Jerusalem District Court decided, Monday, to shorten the 30-month sentences of Baruch Peretz and Asaf Yekutieli, who were convicted in May 2012 of negligent homicide in the death of a resident of the Palestinian Authority (PA) who was illegally in Israel and abandoned to die upon his return to the PA.

By virtue of the court ruling, the sentences were reduced to 21 months.
