The electricity supply at the family home of the boy Asher Natan Marli, who was murdered in the attack in Neve Ya'akov, was cut off today for about half an hour, after the meter they use to pay ran out. The electric company deposited an amount with her for consumption and guaranteed a regular supply. The family is worried: "We don't know what will happen tomorrow. The situation at home is not good"

The family of the 14-year-old boy Asher Natan Marli, who was murdered in the attack in Jerusalem on Friday evening, was cut off from electricity today (Monday) - in the midst of the Shav'a.

Due to financial difficulties, the family uses a rechargeable electricity meter installed in their home, and does not pay an electricity bill according to consumption at the end of the month.

Moshe Marli, Asher Natan's uncle, told about the incident.

"Today, in the afternoon, in the middle of a minister's condolence visit, the electricity was cut off. The family simply pays the electricity like Big Talk, they don't pay the electricity in the normal way because they have a lien on the account, so the electricity company does not supply them with electricity in the normal way. The meter runs out and turns off The electricity. Members of the community called the electricity company and arranged it with the company. But I don't know what will happen the day after tomorrow or in a week. The situation at their house is not good. They are 8 children together with Asher Natan."

From the data of the electric company that came to Walla about a month ago, it appears that 53,421 households in Israel do not pay their electricity bills according to consumption at the end of the month, but according to a prepayment meter (PAM). This means that when the charged amount runs out - the current of electricity in these households Disconnected. According to the law, the company is allowed to install a meter for debtors, where the consumer charges money in advance, and automatically deduct 20% of the charged amount in favor of the payment. Wow! It became known that despite the end of the debt payment, the electric company continues to deduct the charging amount in its favor.

The electric company's response

"The family, which is Keshet Yom, is connected to electricity through a prepayment meter, which it charges itself from time to time according to consumption.

At 1:24 p.m., they contacted the electricity company and told them that due to the failure to charge the meter, the electricity supply to the house was stopped.

This was not known to us.

It is not about disconnection, but about not charging the meter.

As soon as we received the report, NIS 600 was deposited for the benefit of the family for current electricity consumption, and at the same time the family was informed that they would receive a regular supply as long as they were needed.

At the same time, the family's past debt will be transferred at the initiative of the Electric Company to the Electric Company's aid fund in order to examine the payment of the debt by the Electric Company.

Around 14:00, about half an hour after the report, the electricity supply was restored to the family."
