Families of the October 2000 victims and Adalah, the legal center for Arab minority rights, petitioned the High Court of Justice on Thursday to block Internal Security Minister Avi Dichter's nomination of police Lt-Cmdr. Bentzi Sau to the post of the ministry's security secretary. The petition cited the Or Commission's report, which stated that 'Sau should not be promoted in rank or position from his current post for a period of four years from the day of the publication of the commission's findings.' Sau is currently serving as the Border Police staff commander and previously served as the commander of the Jerusalem and Northern District Border Police. It was as the Border Police commander in the North that Sau was involved in the October 2000 riots, during which 12 Israeli Arabs and a Palestinian were killed in clashes with security forces.
