Thursday, November 14, 2019, 13:47 On Thursday, November 14, Lod District Court Judge Hagai Tarsi rejected the appeal filed by the Israeli Police and ordered the release from remand of Neriya Zarog, who is under an administrative distancing order. The court then acceded to the request by the State of Israel and delayed carrying out the decision until the following day in order to allow the State time to file an appeal with the Supreme Court. In his decision, Judge Tarsi upheld the Petah Tikva Magistrates Court’s decision and ruled not to remand Zarog until the end of proceedings. Judge Tarsi did add the condition that Zarog, who has been released to house arrest, must report once a week to the police station. Honenu Attorneys Nati Rom and Adi Keidar represented Zarog. Adi Keidar: “The [Lod] District Court rejected the appeal by the State, censured the request for remand, and said that there is no precedent for the request. We call on Major-General [Nadav Padan] to cancel the draconian order, which harms Neriya and his family without cause.” See here for a complete listing of posts about the case.
