Yaakov Teitel, who was convicted in early 2013 for the murder of two Palestinians, was arrested in 2009 following a prolonged Shin Bet investigation.


Since his arrest, his wife has resided with their children in the Shevut Rachel settlement in Binyamin, the West Bank.


Rivka Teitel was arrested in a wave of arrests in late 2012 in various settlements in Binyamin, and claimed that during her interrogation she suffered verbal abuse, demeaning and rude sexual insinuations.


She was released after several days and recently decided to file the complaint.


Internal Affairs stated in response: "A complaint was indeed filed via Mrs. Teitel's lawyer. She was summoned to be deposed so the issue could be further investigated. As she failed to do so, the case was closed."
