Demonstrators were attacked by police officers near Netanyahu's house in Caesarea/publication according to Section 27a of the Copyright Law
New initiative: Filing personal tort claims against police officers who beat protesters, including Meir Suisa.
Dor Ben Dov, a Strataphist and lawyer who renewed his license for this specific purpose, calls on protesters who were affected by police violence to send him documentation of the cases in order to formulate personal tort claims against the police officers.
"The days when they played in front of an empty field are over!" Ben Dor wrote on his Facebook page, in a post that has already been shared hundreds of times.
"In the Kaplan group, about a quarter of the members are attorneys, like me.
I am organizing a large personal tort suit against police officer Suisa and the other police officers who participated in violent enforcement last night in Kaplan. Among the many counts - enforcement without authority, use of unreasonable force, false arrests and more.
"You won't believe how different they sound in court on the stand.
Anyone who feels harmed in the recent events or who has photographic documentation, was attacked, pushed, damaged, arrested, run over - is invited to contact me privately.
We have no other way but to pay off the policemen personally.
The claim is pro bono without payment of NIS 100, in case it was not understood."

Ben Dor says that since the publication of the post, he has already received more than a hundred inquiries, with descriptions of severe violence, harassment, and protesters being beaten by police officers wearing face masks and without name tags.
Among other things, the applicants describe cases in which a policeman ran over people with a horse, policemen wearing face coverings and without name badges who beat them violently, a man who was beaten inside a police car, and a man who was slapped by a policeman after he asked for his details.
"I have a video of a demonstration we held in Kirya in Tel Aviv, in which Suisa and his policemen push me roughly after slamming my friend's head on the road. He was injured and was taken by ambulance," one of the references reads.
Another appeal described how "a police officer without a name tag slammed a professional photographer to the floor and his camera broke." It should be noted that in the past year, many cases of police violence in demonstrations of the social protest were published on the networks and in the media.
According to him, "The materials are crazy.
The pattern is that people are taken to corners that are not recorded and filmed, turn off the body camera and start beating them." He adds that the confiscation of equipment without justification can also be grounds for a lawsuit: "They take an amplification system for tens of thousands of shekels, and all with a wave of the hand without consideration."

And what are the chances that a personal lawsuit will be approved against the policeman, who did the things in the performance of his duties?
"The issue of a public servant is also subject to discussion. A policeman's certificate does not justify any act. Even the policeman as a public servant and a professional is subject to standards and should behave in an accepted, reasonable professional manner and, of course, non-violent."
He adds that "the idea is to take the policeman and put him in the same situation where he has to deal with his actions. The police build on the fact that they are playing in front of an empty field. They build on the fact that the citizens do not have the legal and financial power to deal with it, and that is what I want to change. I want this tool Any person will be used regardless of their political background, any person who is attacked by the police"
