Hearing for Officer Accused of Beating Arab

The police officer, who was documented beating up the cousin of the murdered Palestinian Arab youth during last week’s riots in eastern Jerusalem, was summoned to a hearing prior to formal charges being filed against him.

The beating was filmed and was made public over the internet. Other evidence points to the officer’s culpability as well. The police officer claimed the youth was out of control and had to be forcibly put under arrest.
