Another Temple Mount activist detained, released

For a selection of cases in which Honenu Attorneys represented Jews detained on or near the Temple Mount please see here.

Friday, April 15, 2022, 15:42 Jerusalem Magistrates Court Judge Eitan Cohen rejected a request by the police for stringent release conditions for a Temple Mount activist who was detained on suspicion of intending to sacrifice a young goat on the Temple Mount for the Passover sacrifice. The conditions requested were house arrest and distancing from the Temple Mount. Judge Cohen stated in his decision that he does not see any need to restrict the freedom of worship of the activist and ordered him released on bail.

Honenu Attorney Nati Rom, who has represented numerous detained Temple Mount activists recently: “‘There are judges in Jerusalem’. Some of the activists detained on suspicion of bringing a young goat to Jerusalem stated under interrogation that they had heard the police commissioner and the internal security minister saying that freedom of religion would be granted to all religions, and that they did not do anything forbidden. The detention violates freedom of worship. I am pleased that the court accepted our opinion.”
