The Jerusalem District Court convicted Emil Abu Halla, a policeman from Rosh
Ha’ayin, Monday on charges of wrongful imprisonment, extortion, spousal abuse,
forgery, fraud and breach of trust.
As part of a plea bargain, Abu Halla
confessed to abducting his Palestinian girlfriend, handcuffing her to his car
and threatening to harm her unless she agreed to marry him. He also confessed to
providing her with a fake ID and forging a police permit allowing her to stay in
Israel so he could carry on his relationship with her.
