Israeli Police to Start an Investigation of Indymedia Israel
Indymedia Israel Under Investigation
On June 21st, the Israeli State Prosecutor ordered Israeli police to start an investigation of the Indymedia Israel collective and website. At the heart of the investigation is an article posted to the site with a picture of a soldier who, according to witnesses, murdered Bassam Abdallah Abu Rahma. The posting with the heading "murderer" asks for the name of that soldier so that he can face murder charges. Abu Rahma, a prominent organizer of the demonstrations against the apartheid wall in Bil'in, was shot and killed on April 17th during the weekly demonstration by a gas canister. He did not pose any threat to the soldiers, who were guarding a wall that was determined to be illegal by Israel's High Court two years ago.

Instead of investigating the murder of Abu Rahma, the Israeli prosecutor has determined (without a trial where witnesses can come and testify) that the soldier in the picture did not shot Abu Raham, and that the Indymedia Israel collective should be investigated for "insulting a public worker".
