On video: "I knew the truth would win": Roman Zdorov returned home after being acquitted of the murder of Tair Rada (Niv Aharonson)
"We tried to solve the mystery, in part we may have succeeded and in part we did not, and it may be possible for you to light up that she was harvested with the blood of her days and who enlightened the world in her short life, took her secret to my grave", with these words the Vice President of the District Court in Nazareth, Judge Asher Kola, signed Roman's verdict Zadorov.
Zadorov was acquitted beyond a reasonable doubt in Tair Rada's murder, after the prosecution failed to prove his guilt in the retrial about 17 years ago.
The attorney's office announced today "that in the coming days the attorney's office will study the verdict in depth and decide on the appeal," according to the wording of the announcement.

"In order to say in the judgments whether the prosecutor's office should appeal this case, you need to read the verdict and get to know the case," says Attorney Yitzhak Bem. "My impression from the initial reading of the decision is that it is not a case in which an appeal should be filed," he continues and explains: "In the case This is the legal situation where one is debating what is the reasonable conclusion from undisputed evidence.
On the one hand, there is the confession and the reconstruction on the part of Zadorov.
On the other hand, there is forensic evidence.
And this is exactly where the question comes in as to whether this evidence taints the confession and reconstruction on Zadorov's part.
And this is the kind of question that is not unreasonable to bring before the appeals court, in this case the Supreme Court, which can certainly decide on issues of this type.
" Salute to Attorney Yarom Halevi, this is a rare and admirable legal achievement of a determined defense attorney who safely steered the ship,
After all the upheavals of the past.
Advocacy work for the poor, against all odds.
"From the point of view of the defense, at the moment they have to do everything in their power to convince the prosecutor's office to end the saga and not appeal, this also includes media lobbying, a meeting before making a decision, etc. , in relation to the evidentiary material that is sufficient for a conviction, can lay a foundation for an appeal against the conviction."
He refers to the question of a compensation claim, and says: "This question will be examined as soon as the procedure reaches the end and a final verdict. I assume that unfortunately - the total number of years in prison will lead to a significant amount."

In relation to the question of what the police and the prosecutor's office should do now to find the real murderer or murderer, Attorney Alfasa replied: "As long as the case remains open - in terms of the law, actions should be taken to solve the mystery.
In practice, it is evident
that there are quite a few events that remain unsolved mysteries - the murder in a youth bar, for example - and I have no idea if there is a breakthrough that could trigger new investigative actions."
of any guilt by the prosecution, and the case against her was closed and it was determined that she was not Tair Rada's murderer.
The judge Asher Kola clarified in the verdict that she is not accused in the case and she cannot be accused in it.
Adv. Alfasa sums up the decision given today in the district court, saying: "You need to go deeper and read, but I must say that Judge Kola went a long way more towards the accused in relation to the new issues that led to the retrial, both in relation to the traces of blood in the bathroom and their significance, and In relation to AK's thesis and the meaning of identifying a hair as possibly belonging to her ex-partner.
Hence his assertions about the reasonable doubt are resonating."
Alfasa added: "Judge French, who agreed with Judge Kola's opinion, delved into the defendant's confessions and refuted the claim that the confessions are true.
He presented a series of questions aimed at pointing out the illogicality of the defendant committing the murder so openly, and behaving in such a criminal manner during the events, and during the investigation.
The verdict puts reasonable doubt on Ness.

His verdict raises the reasonable doubt to a miracle, and raises a great question as to how such a bloody and turbulent scene is completely 'silent' in relation to the presence of the accused in it.
It seems that in the same way one could logically ask why, nevertheless, the accused chose to admit the actions, reproduce them, etc., and 'lose' the queen at the very beginning of the chess game.
"On the other hand," says Alfasa, "the minority opinion of Judge Tansim Shai delves into the defendant's confessions, his meandering testimony in court, in front of all the previous evidence and versions in the various proceedings, and adopts the approach of the prosecution regarding the guilt of the accused. All the external question marks do not divert Judge Nissim Shay from the damning conclusion. In my estimation - it's over and we won't pay."
