Incredibly, it turns out that he may well be innocent. He has just been released from his confinement to a base for the past two months as his trial proceeded because the key witness has retracted his testimony and admitted to lying. Not only he lied, but it seems other members of the unit lied as well. Why? Apparently they had unsuccessfully tried to get this officer transferred a couple of months earlier. That attempt failed, so they decided to accuse him of murder, not only dismissing concern over the personal repercussions to this man, but also to the tarnishing of an already publicity-damaged IDF. If this does indeed turn out to be a conspiracy among these soldiers, it would be entirely appropriate for these pigs men to receive lengthy prison sentences.
