Representatives of the State did not give suitable answers

Thursday, August 6, 2015, 19:01 On the afternoon of Thursday, August 6 the Lod District Court ruled on the six-month administrative detention order issued by Defense Minister Moshe (Boogie) Ya’alon to Mordechai Meyer, an 18 year old youth. During the deliberation, which took place behind closed doors, Meyer’s defense attorney, Honenu attorney Adi Kedar, presented several preliminary pleas critical of the procedure by which the administrative order was issued. According to Kedar, the manner in which the State of Israel issued the administrative detention order involved violating several obligations. Kedar demanded that the order be canceled in its entirety. At the end of the deliberation Judge Avraham Tal ruled that several deliberations will be held to examine the Kedar’s pleas and also a deliberation on the order itself will take place. After the deliberation Honenu attorney Adi Kedar stated that, “After the preliminary pleas were made, the court presented to the representatives of the State a not insignificant number of questions to which suitable answers were not given. We hope that the court will apply pressure on the State until the administrative order, which was given despite the absence of evidence and solely for the purpose of improving ‘ratings’, is canceled.”
