On December 16, a man was stabbed to death in Tel Aviv. It subsequently emerged that the chief suspect in his murder had been safely behind bars two weeks earlier, having been arrested for another crime. But due to the prosecutors’ strike, he was released: The court would not accede to a police request to keep him in custody unless the prosecution backed it, and thanks to the strike, no prosecutor was present in court to do so.
