Without the weapon being found: an indictment for possessing a weapon was filed based on photographs on the phone - voila! news


The indictment was filed against a Palestinian who was in Israel illegally. The police received information that he had a firearm in his possession. The weapon was not found, but a search of his phone turned up a video of him stepping on the gun. A firearms expert determined unequivocally that the gun pictured could not be a dummy gun

An indictment for possession of a weapon, even though the gun was not found (none)

An indictment was filed with the Magistrate's Court in Nazareth for possession of a weapon against a man who saved photos and a video on his phone showing him holding a gun.

The gun, of the Glock type, was not found, but the police are convinced that they have enough evidence to prove beyond any doubt that it is a real gun and not a dummy gun.

This is a relatively rare case, but there have already been similar indictments in the past.

In some of the cases where the weapon was not found, the court convicted of weapons offences, however six months ago there was a case where the court acquitted the accused after determining that it was not possible to prove based on photographs that it was a real weapon.

The current indictment was filed four days ago against a Palestinian who was in Israel illegally.

The accused worked in a car wash business in Kfar Meyser near Kfar Tabor.

At the beginning of this month, the investigators of the Tabor police station received information about that person, from which it emerged that there is a suspicion that he is in possession of a firearm.

According to inspector Haim Siboni, head of the investigations department at the Tabor station, the suspect was caught, and in a search of his cell phone, photographs and a video clip were found in which he is seen stepping on the gun.

The indictment filed by the police prosecution department is based on the opinion of a weapons expert from the Israel Police, who stated unequivocally that the gun pictured cannot be a dummy gun, or an airsoft gun.

This is partly due to the fact that an airsoft gun cannot be loaded with a 9mm bullet, as we will see in the video.

In the event that the weapon is not captured, the opinion of professionals is of decisive importance.

Thus, for example, half a year ago, in the District Court in Nazareth, two defendants were acquitted of the offenses of possessing weapons, carrying weapons and firing firearms, even though a video and photographs of weapons, including shooting, were found on the mobile phones of the two, who are known to be arms dealers.

This is on the grounds that the prosecution did not prove that the tools in the photos and videos, taken from the phone of one of the defendants, are weapons as defined by law.
