Shalom Rahum, father of terror victim Ofir Rahum, condemned on Wednesday the pardoning of his son's murderer as part of the Israel-Hamas prisoner exchange that will see the release of Gilad Schalit, according to Army Radio.
Amna Mouna, Ofir's killer, will be freed and sent abroad.
"We're talking about scum of the earth that will go back to terror," Shalom said. "Even an appeal to the High Court won't help."
Ofir was murdered in 2001 when he traveled to Ramallah to meet a girl he had become romantically involved with via an Internet chat site.
When the two met, several masked men approached the youth and shot him, and then dragged his body to the side of the road in El Bireh not far from Psagot.
