Following the announcement about an effort to arrange a retrial for Yigal Amir, who was convicted of assassinating former Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, Larissa Amir Trimbobler revealed Sunday morning that the lawyers who are dealing with the case have evidence that shows that her husband was not responsible for Rabin’s death.
On her Facebook page, Amir Trimbobler posted the email she received from her husband’s new defense team in Switzerland. “We are pleased to inform you that we possess more than 18 conclusive pieces of evidence that indicate that the bullets that Yigal Amir fired at Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin on November 4, 1995, were not the ones that caused his death,” the lawyers wrote to her.
According to the post, the defense team plans to share the evidence with newspapers and international media outlets but not with Israeli news agencies. The lawyers added that they continue to search for additional evidence and are calling on the public to help “reveal the truth.”
The Geneva-based law firm that is dealing with Amir’s retrial request has stated that Israeli politicians and the Israel Police will not receive any details about the planned legal proceedings.
