An Israeli young man of 17, a resident of the north, was caught by the police with 30 caused by cannabis. With excessive threats he was recruited by the police to incriminate the Cannabis merchant in exchange for his release without penalty.
"Two weeks ago I was caught and wanted to shut me down on trading for 3 for years," the young man tried to explain after the incident in a conversation that came to Cannabis magazine. "I'm in front of an army and I do not have the strength for these problems and I just want to smoke sometimes."
He also explained: "They told me to drop someone from the Telegraph and close your file. I had no choice. A policeman named Jenin from the Katzrin police told me at the end of the interrogation, 'You'll call the place like this,' and that's what I did, I'm sorry and feel guilty. "
In his interrogation, he was charged by the police with the trade and told that he would be sentenced to 3 years in prison, although the punishment for holding cannabis for self-use is, of course, much lower and certainly not leading to imprisonment.
The policemen suggested to the young man that in exchange for helping them catch a merchant, he would be released without charge.
The young man, who was about to be drafted into the IDF, was frightened by the threat and implications of such an indictment for his life, and decided to cooperate.
The police issued a forged identity card to the young man, with whom he verified the "Telegram" application, and then ordered 10 ginabis from a dealer In one of the popular groups.
The merchant himself, whom the police apparently hoped to seize, forwarded the invitation to the emissary, a Haifa resident of 21, to carry out the transfer.
According to some of the claims when the messenger arrived at the place where the delivery was scheduled, the policemen surprised him and beat him vigorously in the face until his eyes were filled with blood and blue marks.
On the other hand, the police claim that the story is a little different and that the messenger was not arrested merely because he tried to escape, did not respond to calls to arrest a police car and allegedly tried to hit policemen with his vehicle.
Finally, according to the police, the car was found to be much more than 10 grams ordered, distributed and ready for distribution.
This morning the suspect will be brought to the Magistrate's Court in Kiryat Shmona.
The Israeli police did not deny the details of the report and the initiative to incriminate a merchant by means of irrational threats against a minor, but in response to a Cannabis magazine report that the violence was caused by the risk posed by the police.
"The Israel Police considers violence and bullying of any kind to be severe," the magazine said in response. "We do not detail the ongoing investigations, but we should note that yesterday the Israeli police arrested a drug dealer who tried to escape the policemen who ordered him to stop, hit a police car and even tried to hit policemen with his vehicle. In search of the vehicle, cannabis drugs were seized in large quantities, distributed and ready for distribution. The suspect (21, Haifa) will be brought this morning for a hearing on the request to extend his remand in the Kiryat Shmona peace office. We will continue to investigate the case thoroughly and carry out all the necessary investigative activities in order to reach the truth and to bring to justice those involved. "
