Media Watch turns to Supreme Court
with "secret document" as evidence
|Israel's Media Watch intends to turn to
the Supreme Court, demanding that its complaint against
television reporter Eitan Oren be re-opened. Basing
itself on the "secret document" that continues
to be forbidden for publication - despite its having been
widely publicized over the internet during the past few
days - IMW maintains that the closing of its complaint
was done "unprofessionally, unethically, and in
complete opposition to the facts at hand."
The original complaint was filed against Eitan Oren, the reporter who filmed the "swearing-in" ceremony of Avishai Raviv's fake Eyal organization, but the police closed the investigation for "lack of evidence." IMW moreover claims that "it appears that the closure was done solely to protect the GSS' behavior in running its agent-provocateur, Raviv."
IMW intends to take this case to the High Court of Justice and demand that the State Prosecutor's Office be force to rescind its decision of closure. An announcement to that effect is to be made shortly.
