Name of suspect in Netanya murder released

The Petah Tikva Magistrate's Court remanded by an additional week Aritzia Akalsongo, Congo national, who is suspected of murdering a woman in Netanya's Carmel Hotel. The other suspect, a Congo national as well, is a soccer player with an Israeli team.


Akalsongo's lawyer, Attorney Katy Tzvetkov from the Public Defender's Office, claimed her client admits he was with the woman during the night and until early morning, but denies he murdered her. The suspect claimed that the woman left through the door, and that he does not know where she went next. (Raanan Ben-Zur)
