Israels justisminister Ayelet Shaked mener at aktoratet bør gå inn for dødsstraff for palestineren som er siktet for drapet på den 19 år gamle jenta Ori Ansbacher ikke langt fra Jerusalem i forrige uke.

Det opplyser The Times of Israel.

Arafat Irfayia, 29, was arrested Friday on suspicion of killing Ori Ansbacher, 19, in a wooded area of southern Jerusalem on Thursday, in a case that has sparked outrage across the country.

Authorities suspect Irfayia may had a nationalistic motive, according to Hebrew-language press reports, but are also probing if the attack was sexual in nature.

Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked told Channel 13 news Saturday that “the military prosecution needs to ask for the death penalty.”

Shaked and other ministers have insisted that the murder was a terror attack, though most details of the incident have been kept under gag order.

Statsminister Benjamin Netanyahu omtalte drapet, som ble utført med kniv, som sjokkerende brutalt.

Israel har formelt dødsstraff, men har kun tatt den i bruk én gang, da Holocaust-arkitekten Adolf Eichmann ble henrettet i 1962.

It is technically allowed in cases of high treason, as well as in certain circumstances under the martial law that applies within the IDF and in the West Bank, but currently requires a unanimous decision from a panel of three judges, and has never been implemented.

Også Netanyahu har kommet med en tilsvarende anbefaling som Shakeds:

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who as defense minister oversees the military prosecution, backed the death penalty bill in November. He also called for the death penalty after a 2017 terror attack in which several members of a family were knifed to death inside their home in the West Bank settlement of Halamish.

Uansett hva aktoratet bestemmer seg for, er justisministerens formaning et viktig politisk signal.
