15-day distancing order for two minors

Monday, July 9, 2018, 16:05 On Monday, July 9, the Jerusalem Juvenile Court released the two girls who were detained the previous day during “Circling the Gates” in the Old City of Jerusalem when they attempted to pray at the gates to the Temple Mount. The police had wanted to release the detainees, both of them minors, at the police station after their detention on condition of a 15-day distancing order from the Temple Mount. However they refused the conditions and the case was transferred to the Jerusalem Juvenile Court. At a deliberation the following day the Jerusalem District Attorney demanded that the minors be released on condition of a 60-day distancing order from the Temple Mount, bail, and a third party guarantee of 5,000 NIS. The judge did not obligate the minors to post bail and released them on condition of a 15-day distancing order from the Temple Mount and a third party guarantee of 4,000 NIS. Honenu Attorney David HaLevi represented the minors. In a related case, a group of seven women and girls, one of whom was assaulted by policewomen, were detained at the gates to the Temple Mount on June 25. Four of the detainees spent two nights in remand. See here and here for details.
