Most anti-violence demonstrators charged
Tuesday, March 1, 2011 At the Jerusalem Magistrates Court seventeen demonstrators were indicted for protesting, and the police have not yet decided whether or not to charge six more. The protesters condemned police and IDF violence at yesterday morning’s destruction at Chavat Gilad. As of now, nine of them, minors and adults, have been sent to court, and charged with disturbing the peace. The police are asking that they be banned from Jerusalem until the end of the legal proceedings. Representatives of Honenu are in contact with the families and the detainees. Honenu Attorneys Itzik Bam and David HaLevi are representing them in court. Binyamin Police are requesting that the three detained near Kochav Hashachar be held another day. The female minor detained near Shai Nitzan’s house was released on condition of an order distancing her from his house for 25 days. Attorney Baruch Ben Yosef represented her on behalf of Honenu.
