Shin Bet: Pearlman remains prime suspect

August 11, 2010 16:36

In a rare and unusual move Wednesday, the Shin Bet released a press statement in response to the Petah Tikva Magistrate's court decision to release Haim Pearlman to house arrest, saying that the organization will still view Pearlman as a prime suspect in the 1990s murders.

"At this point, insufficient evidence has been gathered to prosecute Pearlman. However, the allegations against him have not been refuted, and the Shin Bet views him as a central suspect in the carrying out of the attacks."
