Rabin's assassin refused conjugal visits

Three high court judges reject Amir's petition for conjugal visits; Supreme judge says Amir has shown no sign of remorse for his actions

JERUSALEM - Three High Court judges rejected a petition by Yigal Amir, Yitzhak Rabin's imprisoned assassin, to be allowed conjugal visits by his fiance Larissa Trimbobler.


The state prosecution and the Prison Service fiercely objected to his request.


The petition was submitted nine months ago, after Tel Aviv District Court decided to ban Amir from conjugal visits with Trimbobler.


The Rabbinaial court in Jerusalem is set to convene on the validity of the couple’s marriage Tuesday, which was conducted by a messenger who had visited Amir in his prison cell.


Amir has not shown remorse


A detailed court ruling, compiled by the High Court judge Michael Heshin, stated that Amir still held his dangerous idealistic views, and the inability to supervise over the couple did not permit the two to unite.


Amir’s actions in the past and the fact he has not expressed remorse for the murder of late

Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, has lead to the conclusion not to permit him to unite with his fiancée, Heshin said.


He also wrote that the offenses committed by Amir, were not only severe, but constituted serious security threats.


“Amir has proven he believes in the path of terror as long as the government does not act according to his own views,” Heshin said.
