Released youth receives administrative order

Sunday, June 1, 2014, 14:23 On Sunday, June 1 the youth from Yad Binyamin released on May 27 after being in remand since being detained by the GSS on the morning of Sunday, May 11 received an administrative order banning him from entering the regions of Yehuda and Shomron for one year.
After over two weeks of interrogation in the GSS Kishon Detention Center the 18-year-old youth, who attends a yeshiva in the community of Adei Ad and lives in Yad Binyamin, was released on May 27. GSS interrogators, who severely abused him during interrogation, were not able to present evidence connecting him to the “Price Tag” incident for which he was interrogated, and he was released on May 27 to house arrest until Sunday, June 1.
On the morning of Sunday, June 1 police detectives arrived at his home, detained him and took him to the GSS Detention Center in Petah Tikva. From what followed it seems that the GSS decided carry out a “Price Tag” attack on him. The youth was put in a room with “Ehud” and “Maimon”, both of them GSS interrogators who interrogated him at great length. The interrogators had a conversation with him during which they threatened him and in the end presented him with an administrative order signed by GOC Central Command Nitzan Alon banning him from entering the regions of Yehuda and Shomron for one year. “They sat opposite me and told me that I was going to receive a ‘present’, and that everything has a price,” said the youth. “They threatened me that they ‘wouldn’t leave me alone,’ and then they gave me the order and released me.”
Friends of the youth stress that this is revenge by the GSS over their failure to incriminate him. “He was interrogated for an incident which occurred in the north approximately half a year ago, and now suddenly his presence would be a danger to Yehuda and Shomron? The GSS interrogators are behaving like the last of the criminals, but thank G-d the spirit of the hilltop youth will overcome the establishment’s loss of direction.”
Honenu, whose attorneys have been assisting the youth with legal counsel, reported in response that, “Issuing as a vengeful punishment an administrative order for a youth against whom no evidence has been presented illustrates the general procedure of issuing administrative orders. Unfortunately the [law enforcement] system sends a message that it has had enough of democratic procedures and harasses in any way possible hilltop youth, in the process crushing their rights as Jews.”
