An Israeli military court harshly criticized detectives from the police district covering the West Bank who threatened a Palestinian rape victim and treated her as a suspect, leading her to withdraw her complaint. Three years later, her assailant raped another woman. In September, he was convicted of both rapes, and prosecutors have asked that he be sentenced to 25-30 years in prison. No disciplinary or other measures have been taken against the detectives.
