(MENAFN) Saying that the interrogators questioned Ahed in an inappropriate way for a female minor, Israeli lawyer Gaby Lasky who is defending Palestinian teen Ahed Tamimi has accused investigators of sexual harassment, Arab48.com reported yesterday.
Lasky revealed that despite the fact that Tamimi is young, she was interrogated simultaneously by two men without the presence of a woman in the room or even an interrogator specialized in questioning minors.
"This proves that the [Israeli] law enforcement system infringes upon the rights of Palestinian minors," Lasky also wrote in her complaint to the Israeli attorney general.
Reporters at The Daily Beast said they had watched an exclusive video footage of Tamimi's interrogation leaked on Sunday which reportedly shows the teenager enduring two hours of questioning on 26 December.
One of the interrogators tells her: "You have eyes like an angel" then tries to explain how she is like his sister who "spends all his money on clothes".
