Detainees once more released quietly in yet another “price tag” case

Sunday, November 24, 2013 20:23 In a deliberation which took place at the Jerusalem Magistrate Court on Sunday, November 24 the two minors detained on Friday, November 15 on suspicion of planning to spray paint graffiti on a monastery in Jerusalem were released on condition of not entering the Yehuda and Shomron regions for one month. (In a previous post it was reported that only one of the minors was detained. An update has been added in light of the detention of the second minor.)
The two minors were detained on Friday, November 15 in Jerusalem when according to the police they were on their way to spray paint graffiti on a monastery in Jerusalem. Throughout their entire detention and remand the two denied all charges. The two were defended by attorney David HaLevi of Honenu and also by attorney Itzik Bam serving as a public defender.
Friends of the youths were angered by the police who once again rushed to detain the innocent instead of dealing with the daily instances of terror, including rock-throwing attacks, carried out by Arab terrorists throughout Yehuda and Shomron. The police falsely accused two minors whose only ‘crime’ was their religious appearance and walking at night in the streets of Jerusalem.
In response to the release of the minors Honenu attorney David HaLevi, who represented one of them, said that, “My client, a minor, was interrogated about every criminal incident which occurred recently in the Yehuda and Shomron regions. Even so he was released in the end, clearly indicating that the police had no backing for their accusations.”
