After dozens of protesters demonstrated last night against the decision not to prosecute the driver responsible for the death of 4-year-old Rafael Adana z"l, the Central District Prosecutor's Office announces: "We are inviting the Adana family for a meeting."

In an official statement released by the Prosecutor's Office, it is written: "In response to written requests, we hereby announce that the Central District Prosecutor's Office has invited the family members of the late Rafael Adana for a meeting on the upcoming Sunday. This follows the emotions experienced by the family, as reflected in previous meetings and even in the media."

"The District Prosecutor will meet with the family members in order to present them with an updated situation and allow them to present their position and articulate their claims. During the meeting, the Prosecutor's Office will enable the family, within the framework of the law, to review documentation from the day of the incident. This meeting is part of maintaining communication with the family and its representatives."

The driver of the car that killed Rafael Adana fled the scene

As a reminder, yesterday evening, dozens protested at the Ayalon Junction against the Prosecutor's Office and its decision not to prosecute the driver involved in the incident that resulted in the death of Raphael, z"l.

Raphael Adana was killed when a passing vehicle hit him and ran him over on a road in Netanya. The vehicle continued on without stopping at the scene of the accident, and the identity of the driver remained disputed. The Prosecutor's Office claims that the person driving the vehicle at the time of the incident was Carol Pasler.

Prosecutor's Office: "Unavoidable accident"

According to the family's claim, the driver of the vehicle was the daughter, Heidi Pasler, who, as per the family's account, fled the scene and went to a garage with the intention of altering the accident's evidence and attempting to disrupt the investigation into the case.

In the Prosecutor's Office, they argue that a conversation between the mother and her daughter moments after the accident led to a cellular ping that eliminated the possibility of the daughter's presence in the car at the time of the accident. However, from the conversation, it also emerged that the daughter indeed mentioned that the car would be taken for repairs to a garage, leading to suspicions by the police regarding tampering with the investigation against the two of them.

In the end, the Prosecutor's Office, in a step that sparked significant controversy and now also protests, determined that the mother, Carol Pasler, will also not be prosecuted for manslaughter, despite having fatally struck Raphael Adna, z"l. This decision came after traffic experts asserted that it was an "unavoidable accident," and therefore, Carol herself will face a much less significant charge of negligence rather than the more substantial charge of manslaughter.
