The release of four Jerusalemites from Silwan
June 17, 2014

The Magistrate court judge decided on Tuesday to release four Jerusalemites from Silwan with financial bails and on conditions of house arrest. Mohammad Mahmoud, Al-Dameer organization lawyer, said that the Magistrate court judge decided to release Salim Tawil and the children Ibrahim Yamani, Mohammad Zahaykeh and Issa Al-Qaq with a 500-NIS bail for each and house arrest for 21 days. The lawyer explained that during the last court session that was held on Sunday, the public prosecution submitted a prosecutor’s permit to submit indictments against the detainees which were supposed to be submitted on Tuesday but the defense lawyer requested to release them due to the lack of evidence against them. Lawyer Mohammad said: “when submitting a prosecutor’s permit, it is usually configurable and not objective and is not based on any evidence against the accused. He only requested to extend their arrest in order to continue interrogating them.”
