Golani soldier detained on suspicion of spray painting anti-Arab graffiti on buses

Wednesday, November 20, 2013 15:16 On Tuesday November 19 a soldier in the Golani commando unit was detained on suspicion of spray painting anti-Arab graffiti on buses. The soldier denies all charges against him and it should be noted that he is an exceptional soldier with no criminal record. The soldier’s brother was detained on similar charges on Monday, November 18.
On Wednesday, November 20 the Petah Tikva Magistrate Court extended the Golani soldier’s remand by one day. He is charged with spray painting graffiti on buses belonging to the Afikim bus company in protest of the company employing a majority of Arab drivers. Honenu attorney Adi Kedar filed an appeal with the Central District Court in Lod a short while after the magistrate court ruled.
Honenu attorney Adi Kedar, who is representing the soldier, stated today, November 20, that,” The suspect’s remand is scandalous and based only on intelligence information received yesterday. There is no evidence linking him to the acts and he gave a detailed alibi indicating that he did not carry out the acts attributed to him.”
