Justice Ministry 'Betrays' Bank of China Terror Case


The Israeli Justice Ministry has succeeded in quashing a subpoena for a key witness to appear in the Bank of China (BOC) court case, a case being fought in New York to bring justice to Daniel Wultz, an American terror victim killed in Tel Aviv in 2006.

The case investigating BOC's role in funding terror attacks requested testimony from key witness and former intelligence officer Uzi Shaya last June 26. Last November 15, the Justice Ministry submitted a motion to quash the subpoena on Shaya in a move some have labeled "sabotage."
