The Petah Tikva District Court on Wednesday approved a settlement between the state and the family of Inbal Amram, who was murdered by a Palestinian car thief in 2006. The state will pay Amram's family NIS 3 million.
Last year, the court ruled that police negligence played was a factor in Inbal Amram's death.When Amram disappeared, her family reported her missing to police. The police decided that she had not been missing for long enough and did not help to look for her until it was too late.
A Palestinian from Kalkilya was later sentenced to life imprisonment plus 15 more years for the kidnapping and murder of the 21-year-old Petah Tikva resident, whose car he wanted to steal.
