Ben-Uliel attorney vows to appeal convictions

Yitzhak Bam, an attorney for Amiram Ben-Uliel, says he will appeal his client’s conviction at the Supreme Court, accusing the judges of “legal acrobatics” and relying on coerced statements that had been ruled inadmissible.

“Amiram was convicted of acts to which he admitted but not acts that he committed. His confession was given during a serious violation of his rights, which included torture, and we hope that the Supreme Court will overrule this decision,” Bam says.
