Families of Israeli murder victims say shut out of police investigations
After 11 years in operation, the Mena network still fails to provide victims and their families with timely updates regarding criminal cases, and completely ignores non-Hebrew speakers.
Lieutenant Colonel Itzhik Muati was not in a celebratory mood last Monday. Family and friends were waiting for him, replete with a birthday cake, when he entered his Rehovot home at 8 P.M. Muati, whose son Orgil was murdered last May by three youths, smiled, mumbled some words of thanks, and sat down in the dining room. The next morning he had to testify in a courtroom about the last time he saw his son.
