LONDON, The British Independent newspaper reported Friday that seven years after the killing of US peace activist Rachel Corrie, further evidence started to surface proving that an Israeli military commander obstructed an official investigation into her death.

“The alleged intervention of major-general Doron Almog, then head of Israel's southern command, is documented in testimony taken by Israeli military police a day after Ms Corrie was killed on March 16, 2003,” the Independent said.

It affirmed that it saw the hand written affidavit which was submitted as evidence during a civil law suit being pursued by the Corrie family against Israel.

The newspaper explained that a revealed report written by a military police investigator stated that the commander of the D-9 bulldozer was giving testimony when a senior Israeli officer dispatched by major-general Almog interrupted the proceedings.

According to the newspaper, the military police investigator at the time wrote, "At 18:12 reserve colonel Baruch Kirhatu entered the room and informed the witness that he should not convey anything and should not write anything and this at the order of the general of southern command."

Hussein Abu Hussein, a lawyer for the Corrie family, said that Israel failed as an authority to perform a credible investigation into the incident and caused evidentiary damage.

For his part, Corrie's father condemned the intervention in the investigation of his daughter’s death as "outrageous."

"When you see someone in that position taking those steps you not only have to be outraged, you have to ask why is he covering up, what has he done that he needs to take these steps to cover it up?" the father questioned.
