On a related matter, the Jersusalem Post has an article asking Will Ethiopian aliya be delayed yet again? At present, Ethiopians make up 2% of Israel’s population.

Jerusalem Post:

The state prosecutor and the police are investigating and prosecuting Ethiopians in higher numbers than the rest of the population – with Ethiopian teens being indicted four times as often.

Deputy attorney-general for Criminal Affairs Shlomo (Mumi) Lemberger made the point in a letter he sent on Sunday to the national head of investigations for the police and to district prosecution heads nationwide.

His letter comes only weeks after a Justice Ministry anti-racism report headlined by director-general Emi Palmor and former Supreme Court deputy-president Elyakim Rubinstein highlighted the issue based on official 2015 statistics.
