Wednesday, February 5, 2020, 14:08 On Wednesday, February 5, the GSS announced a two-day extension to the prohibition of the youth, detained on Sunday, to meet with an attorney. The detainee has been interrogated for four days without meeting with an attorney. The prohibition will expire at 16:00 on Friday. The Petah Tikva Magistrates Court accepted a request from the GSS and extended the detainee’s remand until Sunday, February 9. Subsequently the Central District Court in Lod accepted an appeal filed by Honenu Attorney Adi Keidar, who is representing the detainee, and shortened the remand until Thursday afternoon (tomorrow). The GSS is also interrogating an approximately 18-year-old Ariel resident who was detained on Monday, February 3. He was taken to the GSS facility in the central region of Israel and served with an order prohibiting him from meeting with an attorney. On Wednesday, February 5, the Central District Court in Lod rejected an appeal concerning the extension of his remand and he will remain in remand until Sunday, February 9. Honenu Attorney Adi Keidar, who is representing the detainees: “The GSS invests great efforts in investigating an incident when a Jew is suspected of throwing a single rock, without there being a shred of evidence on which to base the suspicion. In the meantime, Jewish lives continue to be abandoned on the very same roads. When Jews are the victims, not only are the suspects not prevented from meeting with an attorney, the vast majority of rock-throwing incidents are simply not investigated!”
