The Awareness Center - American Jewish News Media Not Reporting on Yosef Sagiv Ofri, Israeli Vice Consul

Vicki Polin - To the best of my knowledge there has been absolutely nothing in the American Jewish News Media - Case of Yosef Sagiv Ofri (Israeli Vice Consul)
Allegedly Israeli Vice Consul - Yosef Sagiv Ofri used the internet and email in order to persuade a child to carry out illegal acts such as sodomy and severe sexual abuse. The Jerusalem Post reports that Ofri is a security officer with the consulate and carries an Israeli diplomatic passport. The Israeli Embassy in Washington confirmed that Ofri had been charged but refused to release more information on the case. According to the United States Department of States listing of Foreign Consular Offices in the United States (pg. 58), Ofri is listed as an Israeli Vice Consul since August 24, 2005.

Augusta Judicial Circuit district, attorney Daniel J. Craig, said "Because you're dealing with a citizen of another country here, it was necessary to coordinate our efforts with the State Department and in accordance with the Vienna Convention."

According to
court documents, Yosef Sagiv Ofri is being charged with 19 counts of Sexual Exploitation of Children. He is scheduled to appear in court on October 16, 2006 at 9:00 am. The trail will begin on November 13, 2006.

Hon. Ducan D. Wheale, Judge
Ashley Wright, Prosecutor
Defense Attorney, Michael C. Garrett
Case Number: 2006-CR-822
