GSS detained minors have not seen attorney
Sunday, December 30, 2018, 12:53 A short time ago GSS and Yasam (Special) forces raided a yeshiva in the Shomron. The forces are searching the site and have detained a minor, who is not permitted to meet with an attorney. The minor’s status is unknown. Honenu Attorney Adi Keidar, who is representing the minor: “It appears that the GSS and the Attorney General’s office have internalized neither the conclusions reached after recent security-related interrogations nor the criticism directed at them, and are attempting only by unacceptable and violent means to extract confessions from youths. Also this time a minor was detained, and has been prevented from meeting with an attorney. Shortly we will turn to the court in order to demand to see the minor and follow his condition.” Update: Sunday, December 30, 2018, 15:37 Honenu Attorneys Adi Keidar and Nati Rom are representing an additional minor who has been detained in Modi’in. Update: Sunday, December 30, 2018, 16:15 A third minor has been detained. All three minors are being prevented from meeting with an attorney and are being interrogated by the GSS in cooperation with the Central Unit of the Yehuda and Shomron Police. Honenu Attorneys Adi Keidar and Nati Rom are representing two of the minors. Attorney Itamar Ben Gvir is representing the third. The minors will be brought before a judge tomorrow. Update: Sunday, December 30, 2018, 19:25 The three minors will remain in remand overnight and have not met with an attorney. The parents of the three minors were prevented from being present during their interrogations, in violation of the Youth Law.
