Rape suspect's attorney: The case will be overturned

Attorney Nashef Darwish, who represents the Palestinian Authority resident accused of raping a 7-year-old girl in the Modi'in area, raised doubts on Tuesday morning about the conduct of the investigation.

In a conversation with Channel 12 News, Darwish said, "After I reviewed the details of the case, I can tell you - this is the Dreyfus trial - the case will be reversed in the coming days," and "I say with certainty that people are going to be shocked by the result that will be received in the coming days." Interviewed by Israel Defense Forces Radio, he said there is no dispute about the severity of the case but asked, "Just because he is an Arab, does he not deserve the presumption of innocence?"
