The Association of Centers for Assistance to Victims of Sexual Assault is holding a conference this morning (Thursday) in Tel Aviv to establish the courts for sexual offenses. The establishment of designated courts is a move that the union has been promoting for a long time, but now that the Labor Party has included it in the coalition agreements, there seems to be a high possibility of establishment. The conference was attended by, among others, the ministers Merav Michaeli and Tamar Zandberg, and MKs Michal Rosin, Idit Silman, Keren Barak and Yoav Saglowitz.



During the conference, T., one of the victims in the Eyal Golan affair, described how police arrested her at six in the morning at her home and took her for questioning. "They're taking me, a victim is being harmed, handcuffed!" T. said.



"I do not understand what I am going through, the feelings were hard, I was scared, I was scared, I got calls from people who demanded I not tell or talk," T. further shared, "I was taken to the police and they did not give me a psychologist,Not a social worker. "

Advocate Rotem Aloni-Davidov, who represented T. and another complainant in the case, in a lawsuit against the police, criticized the treatment the victims received, in the face of the "challenging" treatment that Golan received: "This case is exceptional in its severity.

T. felt attacked, she did not trust the police so she did not tell the whole story.

You see in the interrogations that everything they asked them answered the truth, but no one let them tell the story and that causes damage in the interrogation.



"" You see the gap in relation to them in the interrogation.

"They were not allowed to smoke a cigarette or go out to eat, while Golan was allowed to smoke during the interrogation and bring him food," she added. Stop the people in real time, let them continue like this for months.

They break their souls a second time. "

In 2019, the Blinner Committee for the Examination of the Treatment of Victims of Sexual Offenses in Criminal Procedure published its recommendations for the establishment of designated departments for sexual offenses in law enforcement agencies - police, prosecutors and courts - but the recommendations were not adopted by Supreme Court President Esther Hayut.



The Association of Centers for Assistance to Victims of Sexual Assault stated: "When less than 10% of the victims file a complaint, and 84% of the cases are closed without an indictment - it is clear that the system is broken and we must repair it. The Israeli public has made great progress in the fight against sexual violence. "And the time has come for the judiciary not to be the last to be left behind.
