Despite the apparently lenient plea agreement, yesterday Rami Yogev submitted a request to delay the execution of the prison sentence he was sentenced to through attorney Yaslovitz. In the coming days, an appeal will be submitted to the Supreme Court “I prefer to deal with all 17 charges and not with an admission of what I did not do” Yogev said
As I recall, Yogev, a former employee of El Al, was convicted as part of a plea deal on three charges based on the version of a state witness and a confession he allegedly gave after a long stay in detention.
Yesterday (D), Yogev submitted to the District Court in Tel Aviv a request to suspend the prison sentence he was sentenced to until a decision is made on the appeal that is expected to be filed in the coming days by his attorney, attorney Nir Yoslovitz.

“I’m not without mistakes, but I’m not ready to find myself behind bars for crimes I didn’t commit,” Yogev said and added “the risk involved in bringing all the charges back to trial is clear to me and I will stand by it, I will not let my truth and that of my family be undermined in my intention to fight against the prosecution’s campaign of attrition (a journey that led, among other things, to a false conviction) until proven innocent”
The request submitted by attorney Nir Yaslovitz is based on the following legal claims:
- The confession on which the verdict is based was hidden in another version that was presented to Yogev’s probation officer.
- Failed representation during the trial (in the arguments for the punishment, claims were made that are in complete contradiction to the plea agreement, which led to criticism from the court and the prosecutor’s office itself).
Attorney Nir Yaslovitz: “My client, today embarks on a journey for his truth, after going through Via de la Rosa, of prolonged detention, exhausting investigations and the application of undue pressure, even though he allegedly received a lenient plea deal, today Rami Yogev plays the cards and wants to face all the charges under a new representation”.
