Funeral Of Slain Man Held Under Strict Security Measures In Jerusalem

Hundreds of Palestinians, including family members, held earlier on Friday at dawn the funeral procession of the slain Palestinian, Ibrahim Hijazi, 32, in occupied Jerusalem although the police and the army imposed a tight siege in an attempt to limit the number of Palestinians attending the funeral.
 The Israeli army handed the family the body of their slain son, shortly after midnight, before installing numerous roadblocks to prevent the Palestinians from participating in the funeral procession, and informed the family that only 45 persons are allowed to attend.

The WAFA News Agency said the soldiers installed many roadblocks in Salah Ed-Deen Street and various nearby areas after declaring them closed military zones, while hundreds of Palestinians, who were prevented from participating in the funeral procession, started chanting for the slain Palestinian, the liberation of Palestine and the end of the illegitimate Israeli occupation.

Despite the extensive presence of soldiers and police officers, and the tight siege, more than 300 Palestinians managed to break through the barricades, and attended the funeral and burial of the slain Palestinian.

Hijazi was buried in Bab as-Sahera graveyard in Salah Ed-Deen area in occupied East Jerusalem. He was assassinated, Thursday, in his own home by multiple rounds of live ammunition fired by undercover forces of the Israeli military.

Israel claims he is behind the attempted killing of fanatic Israeli rabbi Yehuda Glick, who suffered four gunshot injuries to his chest, ribs and intestines.

Glick led repeated invasions into the al-Aqsa Mosque in occupied Jerusalem as part the attempts “to demolish the mosque and rebuild the temple.”

He is also the head of the so-called Temple Mount Heritage Foundation, the umbrella foundation that runs many fanatic groups responsible for numerous provocative attacks and invasions targeting the Al-Aqsa Mosque and Muslim worshipers.

Hijazi is a former political prisoner who was held by Israel for 11 years, including 10 years in solitary confinement, and was released on June 5, 2012.

He was initially sentenced to six years, but in 2004, he received an additional four-year imprisonment allegedly after attacking a soldier.

Two Dallas Men Released After Serving 15 Years

Dennis Lee Allen and Stanley Orson Mozee walked out of a Dallas County courtroom Tuesday after the judge ruled that their murder convictions from 2000 should be overturned based on previously withheld evidence. The Innocence Project and the Innocence Project of Texas had petitioned for the pair’s release based on evidence that suggests serious prosecutorial misconduct as well as the favorable results of recent DNA testing on bloodstains and other key evidence from the crime scene. District Attorney Craig Watkins and his Conviction Integrity Unit agreed that the prosecutor withheld exculpatory evidence and joined the lawyers for Allen and Mozee in seeking Tuesday’s ruling that the pair did not receive a fair trial on that basis.

Allen and Mozee were convicted of the 1999 murder of Reverend Jesse Borns Jr., despite a lack of physical evidence or any eyewitnesses connecting them to the crime. The prosecution relied on testimony from jailhouse informants and an unrecorded confession from Mozee, who has a history of mental illness and immediately recanted, saying he was coerced into signing a statement.

Post-conviction DNA testing found no trace of DNA from the two men on multiple items recovered from the scene, however DNA from one or more persons that doesn’t match to the victim, Allen or Mozee was discovered on several items. Further, letters were discovered in the former Assistant District Attorney’s case file from jailhouse informants indicating that they had been promised reduced sentences in exchange for their testimony. These informants, who claimed to have heard Allen and Mozee admitting to the murder, swore to the jury that they didn’t receive, or even seek, favorable treatment for their testimony. These letters were never disclosed during the 2000 trials despite orders from the judge to turn over prior statements made by all witnesses and all evidence favorable to the defense. The two inmates both received lenient sentences for the crimes they were facing and have since told defense attorneys their initial testimony was false.
