National Unit of Serious and International Crime Investigations released Alex Ostrovsky, suspected o

Tuesday, September 27 21:02 Honenu reports that after ten days of exhausting interrogation in the National Unit of Serious and International Crime Investigations facility, Alex Ostrovsky, the Eli resident arrested on suspicion of vandalizing IDF vehicles at the Binyamin Territorial Brigade base was released a short time ago. Ostrovsky was released at the police station to house arrest for five days, after which time he will be banned by administrative order from entering Yehuda and Shomron for ten days. This morning a deliberation took place on his case in which investigators from the National Unit of Serious and International Crime Investigations requested a six (!) day extension on Ostrovsky’s remand. However after an agreement between Honenu attorney Adi Kedar, who is representing Ostrovsky, and the aforementioned investigators, it was decided that if there is no significant development in the investigation, Ostrovsky will be released from remand by 12:00 tomorrow. Currently it becomes clear that the police made a mountain out of a molehill. Ostrovsky was released as stated above at the police station after no connection between him and the vandalism of the IDF vehicles was proven. Ostrovsky said that the National Unit of Serious and International Crime Investigations interrogators tried to persuade him to admit to an act that he had not done, and even threatened him with various threats. For example the interrogators threatened him that if he does not confess, they will spread a rumor that he is a “collaborator with the police”. Additionally the interrogators railed at him that “your friends don’t care about you because you’re secular”. Honenu attorney Adi Kedar, who represented Ostrovsky, responded to his release that “after the highly publicized arrest, made with much fanfare, Alex Ostrovsky was released during evening hours, and that despite the serious claims that the National Unit of Serious and International Crime Investigations interrogators made during the past ten days in an attempt to extract a admission of an act he did not do.” Kedar added that “The National Unit of Serious and International Crime Investigations hereby joins the long list of police departments, and the GSS, who amass more and more false arrests of settlers.”
