Report: Israeli police caught robbing Palestinian workers

May 31, 2012 8:59 P.M. (Updated: June 2, 2012 4:09 P.M.)
TEL AVIV, Israel (Ma'an) -- Three Israeli policemen were arrested Wednesday on suspicion of beating and stealing from Palestinian workers in Jerusalem, the Israeli daily Haaretz reported.

A police representative told an Israeli court on Thursday that Uziel Hanun, Osama al-Sahly and Reuven Dhokerker regularly used threats to escort Palestinian workers into alleys in the Old City.

"Those who didn't have money were beaten and sent home, those who did were also beaten, and their money stolen," the court was told.

Hanun, al-Sahly and Dhokerker were arrested Wednesday after being caught "in the act," Haaretz reported.

Police officials believe the robberies were systematic, the report said.

The police officers allegedly attacked a worker from Ramallah and took his wages. He then had to ask for money to get home, the police representative told the court.
