False detainment in Ramat Migron
Tuesday, April 24, 14:28 Four youths were detained this morning at the Ramat Migron outpost in Binyamin, Honenu reports. The youths were taken to the Sha’ar Binyamin Police Station, where three of them were released after it became apparent that they had been erroneously detained. This morning border police forces detained four youths in Ramat Migron on suspicion of violating restraining orders banning them from the site. They were taken to the Sha’ar Binyamin Police Station where it became apparent, after a quick examination, that three of them were not under a restraining order, and those three were released. The released youths reported that they will consider suing the police for false detainment. The remaining detainee, against whom a restraining order had been issued banning him from entering the site, was arrested at the station and will brought before a judge. Last week two youths were arrested at the Ramat Migron outpost following clashes with a group of anarchists and Arabs who came to plow a field in the area of the outpost. The youths were arrested on suspicion of violating a closed military zone order. In a deliberation at the Jerusalem Magistrate Court it became apparent that at the time of the arrest the closed military zone was not in effect, but rather issued after the youths were arrested. Judge Miriam Lifschitz-Prives ruled that the youths be released on account of the problematic claim of the closed military zone status made by the police.
