Police Commissioner Yohanan Danino has decided to turn over materials collected during an investigtion into the hit-and-run accident that killed a young Israeli woman, Lee Zeitouni, to the French authorities.

 

The unusual measure took place last week as Danino and Head of the Police Investigations Unit Yoav Segalovich visited their counterparts in Paris and presented them with the case materials, Yedioth Ahronoth reported Monday.

It has been over a year since Zeitouni was run over and killed in Tel Aviv, but the two suspected perpetrators, Claude Isaac  and Eric Robic, both of whom fled to France, have yet to be charged or extradited to Israel.

 

The Israeli police officials estimated that the suspects will not be turned over to Israel, and therefore expressed hope that providing the French police with the investigation materials will enable the French authorities to indict them.

 

Zeitouni's friends and family have led a campaign demanding the French authorities to extradite the suspects to Israel, but as the campaign failed, they filed an official complaint with the French police.

 

Following the accident Police Commissioner Danino said: "France has signed an extradition treaty but usually avoids extraditing its citizens. We wish to bring the suspects to trial here, but the other option is that they would be tried in France."
