Six months in prison was sentenced today (Tuesday) to a man who impersonated a policeman and threatened Knesset member (at the time) Itamar Ben Gabir that he was on his way to him with a gun to "treat him, his wife and his children."

The judge in his decision: "The threats were not 'true'".

According to the indictment filed by the prosecution unit of the police, the person who was convicted impersonated a police officer named Abed Naarani (allegations were made against him in the past of unusual violence against protesters).

Between Naarani and the accused, there is a prior acquaintance, both against the background of the officer's work in the police force and also against the background of the fact that Naarani filed a defamation lawsuit against the accused and others at the Tel Aviv Magistrate's Court.

About a year ago, the accused began to contact different people, through the 'Hitoli service', and during the conversations he harassed them while playing threatening contents in their ears, in different accents, while on some occasions he presented himself to the harassed as if he were a teenager.

He posed as a policeman and threatened the Knesset member.

One of the more disturbing calls was last May at approximately one o'clock in the morning when the accused called from his phone the phone of Knesset Member Itamar Ben Gabir who did not answer that call.

The next day, the defendant called the member of the Knesset three more times, and in the last call, when Ben Gabir answered the call and "picked up", he introduced himself to the member of the Knesset as a Naarani policeman and Azi threatened him by saying that he had a gun ready on the way to him and that he had prepared 16 bullets to "treat" In him, his wife and children.

The accused added in MK Ben Gabir's ears that - "You have hurt our people too much, your time is up, I am now on my way to you".

The representative of the accused police prosecution claimed that the accused violated a long list of values, including of course the peace of mind of the complainants, the sense of security and well-being of the person in general, and especially the officer Naarani, of course, the right to privacy, security and peace of mind of members of the Knesset and police officers, along with a violation of the order of the rule of law, and a violation in democracy because of the special damage to public servants and the people's elected officials.

The prosecutor, attorney Rinat Itzhaki, also stated that the fear and terror that is sown in the hearts of the people's elected representatives may cause them to fear that they will not perform their duties properly.

According to the prosecution, the fact that the accused was able to obtain the personal phone number of Knesset member Ben Gabir embodies excessive severity.

Judge Shamai Becker, in the sentencing, stated that we must especially protect public servants, certainly also their elected officials.

"Certainly in these troubled days, when every leper and snot-nosed vulture allows himself to threaten, or God forbid, raise a hand - against public servants and his elected officials," the judge wrote in the sentencing and added: "However, the actual damage caused by the commission of the offense is not serious, and especially when it is finally known that the The threats - they are not ``true'' threats, but their purpose is to incriminate, blacken and conflict between the Naarani policeman and the law and among others. The actions of the accused are hard and bad, for which he is giving judgment today, but they are less serious, ironically, than those threats He confessed, in practice, and which were only used as a cover or a tool in his criminal war against that Naarani."

In conclusion, Judge Becker sentenced police officer Abed Naarani to six months in prison and compensation of NIS 5,000.
