The Nazareth District Court and the Israeli Supreme Court have so far refused to produce any duly signed and certified decision or judgment record, pertaining to Roman Zadorov. Zadorov is held by the Israeli authorities, purportedly as a convict in the gruesome murder of 13.5 yo Tair Rada - with no duly made Verdict, no duly made Sentencing, and no duly made Arrest Decree.
Figure 1: Support sign for Roman Zadorov at the OccupyTLV camp: "Me too with Roman Zaoorov. We are sick and tired of the corruption." Over a quarter million members are listed in social networks support groups, and the case led to unprecedented attacks on the courts and the justice system by senior law professors. In Israeli law, there is no provision for a grand jury, or any other effective mechanism for addressing corruption of the justice system itself.
OccupyTLV, August 16 -- Roman Zadorov, a Ukrainian citizen, is held by the Israeli authorities, purportedly as a convict, sentenced to life in prison in the murder of 13.5 yo Tair Rada. However, inspection of the trial court records failed to discover duly made Verdict, Sentencing, or Arrest Warrant. The case exposed widespread corruption of the justice system, and led to unprecedented attacks on the courts by senior law professors. [1-2]
This week, as part of the ongoing efforts to obtain duly made decision records pertaining to Roman Zadorov, a series of requests and inquiries have been filed in the Supreme Court: [3-7]
a. State of Israel v Roman Zadorov(502/07) in the Nazareth District Court - six (6) trial hearings protocol records, which were published unsigned, uncertified electronic records by Judges Yitzhak Cohen, Esther Hellman, and Haim Galpaz of the Nazareth District Court, were filed with the Supreme Court Chief Clerk (where the Nazareth paper court file is now held). The Chief Clerk was asked to provide photocopies of the original protocol records, signed by the respective judges and duly certified by the Chief Clerk, "True Copy of the Original".
A previous attempt to inspect the Nazareth District Court's paper court file, which is held by the Supreme Court, in order to verify that signed, original records existed at all, was prevented by Supreme Court Magistrate Gilad Lubinsky under the incredible reasoning of a "jumble" in the court file. That, when the Regulations of the Courts -Inspection of Court Files (2003) say: "Every person is permitted to inspect court decisions, which are not lawfully prohibited for publication". Beyond that, the Supreme Court has repeatedly made lofty declarations, regard the right to inspect court records, e.g., "a fundamental principle of any democratic regime... constitutional, supra-statutory"" (2009 Judgment in Association for Civil Rights in Israel v Minister of Justice).
b. Roman Zadorov v State of Israel (7939/10) in the Supreme Court - request was filed with the Supreme Court for a duly signed and certified, "True Copy of the Original", copy of Magistrate Gilad Lubinsky's decision, which denied access to inspect of the original paper court records in the Nazareth District Court paper court file - State of Israel v Roman Zadorov (502/07) - under the incredible reasoning of a "jumble" in the paper court file. The decision record was received by mail unsigned and uncertified as purported service by the Supreme Court.
