Israel Police Drag Their Feet in Investigation of Attack on Foreign National

Vinay Menon, of India, sustained serious head injuries after three men in Pardes Hanna allegedly attacked him. Officers ignored eyewitness reports and didn’t take Menon’s full statement until days later.

Last Sunday, at about 8 P.M., Vinay Menon was riding his bike home down a winding side-street in Pardes Hanna. He had returned to Israel from India about a week earlier to spend the Passover holiday with his wife, Michal Livneh, and their two daughters, and to celebrate the birthday of his older daughter.
