In response to the announcement by the police that they had arrested suspects accused of spraying graffiti in the village of Luban Al-Sharqiya, Honenu said that, “ Where have we ever seen an operation of this magnitude, comprised of such large numbers of police and GSS forces, all in order to arrest a few young women suspected of spraying graffiti, the punishment for which according to law is a fine? ” The young women are currently being brought to a deliberation on their remand extension at the Jerusalem Magistrate Court. They are being represented by attorney Ariel Atari, who has been hired by Honenu.
