Almost NIS 13 million withheld from PA to compensate Israel ‘collaborators‘

Following a verdict given at the Jerusalem district court, NIS 12.7 million was transferred to the offices of foreclosure in Jerusalem after several files were opened against the for incarcerating citizens accused of collaborating with Israel.

The money will be given out by law enforcement agencies to the foreclosure cases that are managed by their offices in Jerusalem. The ones who will benefit the most from these files are the Arab-Israeli citizens living in the , who were falsely imprisoned by the PA under the suspicion of helping Israel.

According to the verdict given by judge Moshe Drori, the arrest and imprisonment were done without authority, as the PA was never given such power beyond the West Bank. The imprisonment itself provided enough grounds to sue for damages.

Drori described in his decision the various atrocities done in the basements of the PA‘s security facilities, which included torture, rape, amputations and even murder.

The Law Enforcement and Collection System Authority will work in the following days to distribute the money to those affected in accordance with the court‘s decision.
