The Jerusalem Post published an apology on Monday for an editorial article published in September, claiming that "Simcha Rothman's support of a Jewish terrorist crosses a dangerous line." The article was written in connection to the interrogation of Amiram Ben Uliel, the suspect in the Duma arson case, in which torture was allegedly used, and regarding a Tweet by the MK in which he made a general statement that "he doesn't know if a justice system which bases a conviction on an admission under torture can be considered a system that does justice."
After Rothman submitted a libel claim through Adv. Uriel Nizri, against the newspaper for statements attributed to him, the Jerusalem Post published an apology in which it clarified that "MK Rothman did not make any statement that supports any Jewish terrorist or Jewish terrorist act." The paper added that they apologize for any inconvenience caused to the MK.
