Ilana Rada said this morning (Thursday) that "the prosecutor's office murdered my daughter. My war is just beginning."
This, at the end of the court hearing, which announced the acquittal of Roman Zdorov, 17 years after the murder of the girl Tair Rada, Ilana's daughter.
"The next step is to start looking for the killers and we know where to go," she said.
The court's decision, which severely criticized the prosecution's conduct in the case, also led to similar reactions from other parties.
MK Moshe Arbel of Shas harsh criticism of the judicial system.
"The law enforcement systems must draw lessons from this sad affair and the consequences of the arrogance in its conduct and do everything in their power to prevent false convictions of criminal defendants and bring the murderer of the late Tair Rada to justice as soon as possible."
An organization in Tselmo said: "The time has come for a sharp soul-searching of the system. This is a system that abuses the weak, persecutes taxi drivers and beggars, persecutes people who tell the ombudsman a shameful legal case, but backs the powerful.
We hope that this decision will be a stop sign to stop the prosecution of the weak and fight the real criminals."

This is a tragic and difficult case. The Katzrin community is a strong and supportive community that is moving forward for growth and development. The Katzrin local council respects the court's decision And continue to support the families."
