Golani soldier suspected of spraying anti-Arab graffiti will be released to house arrest

Wednesday, November 20, 2013 19:03 On the evening of Wednesday, November 20 the Central District Court ruled on an appeal filed by Honenu in response to the magistrate court’s decision to extend the soldier’s remand until the following day. The Golani soldier detained on Tuesday, November 19 on suspicion of spray painting graffiti on buses belonging to the Afikim bus company in protest of the fact that most of their drivers are Arab will be released to house arrest at 22:30 (Wednesday, November 20) and will return to his army unit the following morning. The soldier is also forbidden to contact his brother who has also been implicated in the graffiti incident.
It should be noted that the detainee denies all charges, is an exceptional soldier and has no criminal record.
Honenu attorney Uri Keinan stated that Honenu is “satisfied with the Central District Court’s decision which partially accepted the appeal and ordered the release [of the soldier]. From the beginning there had been no grounds for his remand.”
