Detainees denied right to meet with attorney

Friday, January 3, 2020, 9:05 On the night between Thursday, January 2 and Friday, January 3, the GSS detained a Modi’in-area resident, who was then served with an order prohibiting him from meeting with an attorney for three days. A Bnei Brak resident was also detained by the GSS in Gush Etzion on Thursday, and he too was served with an order prohibiting him from meeting with an attorney. On Friday (today) a deliberation will be held at the Central District Court in Lod on an urgent appeal filed by Honenu Attorney Adi Kedar in the case of the Bnei Brak resident, demanding that the order be lifted. An additional detainee in the case, a minor, was released by the Petah Tikva Magistrates Court to house arrest. The police requested a delay in carrying out the decision. On Friday (today) a deliberation will be held at the Central District Court in Lod at which the police will request cancelation of the Petah Tikva Magistrates Court decision. Honenu Attorney Adi Kedar, who is representing the detainees, leveled sharp criticism at the GSS for their prohibiting meetings with an attorney: “We have again encountered damaging conduct that crosses limits. The GSS and the police are preventing youths who have no criminal record from meeting with an attorney, over relatively minor misdemeanors that were not even carried out. It seems that they [the GSS] have gone too far and in the wrong directions. We will appeal the prohibition with the Supreme Court, if necessary.”
