Close to the Passover holiday, we were approached by D’, a young man with no criminal record who finished his military service – in an elite unit in the IDF – received marks of excellence from recent combat systems, contributed and continues to contribute a great deal to the security of the State of Israel.
The story of the case: D’, who has been dating his girlfriend for several years, decided to surprise her and propose to her in front of acquaintances and family members on the beach. His friends came to D’ to help him to organise the place. During the preparations on the beach, two policemen appeared, and demanded to know what are they doing and even demanded to show them their identity cards. D’, who is well versed in the law, understood that their request was illegitimate and this was due to the fact that they had no reasonable suspicion of such a demand. Even before D’ had finished trying to convince the police, he found himself handcuffed and taken to the police station.
A few months after the incident, D’ found out that he had a police record left, which is a real stain on his life. D’ who planned to apply for a public office was very worried that the police registration would reduce his chances of being accepted, as well as the fact that he had a police record (for interfering with a police officer while performing his duty), which was not true at all.
In his distress, D’ turned to the Tebeka Association in order to assist him in erasing this police record. The Tebeka Association worked vigorously and, to our delight, was able to assist in erasing the police registration. D’ got a chance to open a new chapter in his life and was grateful for the assistance he received.פורסם ב
