Identity revealed of police officer who attacked a truck driver

34-year-old Moshe Cohen is the now-suspended member of the riot police who was documented physically assaulting an east-Jerusalem truck driver who had allegedly struck Cohen’s private vehicle a few days earlier and driven off.

Two days after an Israel Police officer who was documented physically assaulting a truck driver in east Jerusalem was released on house arrest, his identity was cleared for publication on Saturday.

Moshe Cohen, 34, is a resident of Jerusalem and a member of the Israel Police’s riot division. Several days before the incident, the truck driver, Mazen Shawiqi, had damaged the policeman’s parked private vehicle and driven off. Cohen later tracked him down and initiated the confrontation at 7am on Wednesday morning.

On Friday, Police Commissioner Roni Alsheikh released a public letter concerning the incident. He wrote, “This is an irregular incident that has no place in the Israel Police,” and condemned the blow to police officers’ public image that Cohen caused.

 

The police chief further announced that Cohen has been summoned for an administrative hearing that may result in his dismissal from the police.
