Demonstrators in Ramat Hasharon in front of Beit Ofer Gal (Niv Aharonson)
Dozens of people demonstrated this morning (Friday) in Ramat Hasharon in front of the house of Ofer Gal, who raped his sister Hila Tzur for 15 years.
The protest was held demanding that he leave his house on Ella Street in Ramat Hasharon, thus allowing Hila to live in security in her city of residence.
Hila's story was published in the program "The Source".
"We want him to leave Ramat Hasharon to another city," said Yariv Levin, Gal's neighbor who organized the protest.
"The goal is also to strengthen Hila, as well as to change the law so that there is no statute of limitations. He was saved from 27 years in prison that he was sentenced to. You did not pay your debt to society - so at least let her live. Most of the residents in the neighborhood say the same."
