Likud MK and Knesset Immigration, Absorption and Diaspora Committee chairman Abraham Naguise challenged the decision made by Attorney-General Yehuda Weinstein to close the case against a police officer filmed attacking a soldier of Ethiopian descent. He called out to government officials on Monday to explain Weinstein's decision, and urged the attorney-general to reconsider pressing charges.

Naguise, who is of Ethopian descent, explained in his statement that Weinstein's decision "does not correspond to the images people see on the screen."

The  Immigration, Absorption and Diaspora Committee was scheduled to host a discussion Tuesday on violence against immigrants by law enforcement officers. Naguise stated that "police violence is a serious issue which affects members of immigrant communities and the citizens of Israel as a whole."
