Four Border Policemen were charged with abusing a Palestinian at a West Bank checkpoint on Monday at the Jerusalem District Court.

The charges, which include assaulting a helpless individual and aggravated assault,  were brought against the officers by the Justice Ministry's Police Investigations Department (PID) following an investigation.

According to the charge sheet, a Palestinian man arrived at the Aljib checkpoint, around nine kilometers north of Jerusalem, and was asked to present an ID.

He did not have an ID, and was placed by the commander of the Border Police crew into a police jeep together with a dog "in order to frighten the complainant and force him to hand over the ID," the PID said.
