Friday, May 14, 8:45 Last night (Thursday), at the entrance to the Lod Police Station, a senior police office jumped on Honenu Attorney Nati Rom and ordered his detention. The officer refused to listen to Rom’s explanation that he was there to advise detainees. The officer and other policemen also refused to identify themselves to Rom.
After Knesset Members Simha Rotman and Orit Struk from the Religious Zionist Party intervened, the police understood their mistake and released Rom, who continued his work assisting detainees and others in need of legal counsel.
Rom described the encounter and added “I hope that the police succeed in returning a sense of security to the area, eradicating terror and detaining everyone who should be detained. I thank the Knesset members for their assistance.”
Honenu Attorney Adi Keider sharply criticized the violation of Rom’s rights: “The abandonment of the police has increased by a level. On one hand the Arabs are violating curfews, shooting at Jews, torching buildings, including synagogues, completely unhindered, and on the other hand, dozens of policemen forcibly detained an attorney whose only ‘fault’ was providing legal counsel to detainees.”
Please see below a video clip of Honenu Attorney Nati Rom speaking and additional photos and video clips of the Arab rioting in Lod.
