The High Court of Justice on Sunday ordered chief IDF prosecutor Brig.-Gen. Avi Mendelblatt to reconsider his decision to try Battalion commander Lt.-Col. Omri Borberg, the officer involved in the shooting of a bound and blindfolded Palestinian during a protest in Ni'lin in August, on charges of "conduct unbecoming a soldier" alone. The court gave the State 40 days to respond, at the end of which the court will decide on the continuation of legal proceedings. It follows petitions filed by several human rights organizations demanding that the officer be charged with a more severe offense.
