District court shortened remand of three administrative exiles
Tuesday, December 20, 20:05 The Jerusalem District Court partially accepted the appeal that Honenu filed and shortened the remand of the three administrative exiles arrested in Jerusalem by two days. In the morning the Jerusalem Magistrate Court extended until Sunday the remand of the three administrative exiles who were arrested on suspicion of “organizing ‘price tag’ incidents”. Honenu attorney Naftali Wertzberger, who is representing the arrestees, filed an appeal on the decision, and in the afternoon a deliberation on the appeal was held in the Jerusalem District Court. Judge Moshe Yo’ed HaCohen partially accepted the appeal and shortened the remand by two days. The judge ruled that the police must hurry to complete the investigation by Friday. It should be noted that the interrogators have not presented the arrestees with any evidence linking them to any crimes and have not indicated during interrogation any specific incidents of which they are suspected. In a related case, Jerusalem Magistrate Court Judge Yitzhak Shimoni extended by six days the remand of two minors, residents of Bat Ayin, who were arrested on suspicion of puncturing the tires of an Arab vehicle in Gush Etzion a few weeks ago. The two deny all charges and told Honenu attorney David HaLevi, who is representing them, that the interrogators have not presented them with any evidence linking them to the incident. HaLevi filed an appeal on their remand and a deliberation will take place this evening at the Jerusalem District Court.
