Abstract (Document Summary)

Military sources said that though [EFFI FEIN] would not be tried, he would also not be considered for promotion. Fein had been up for promotion to the rank of brigadier-general, but the promotion was cancelled due to the investigation.

The prosecution had contended that Fein, the former commander of the Givati infantry unit, based at the time in Gaza, issued orders to beat demonstrators severely during the first weeks of the intifada.
