March 31, 2015

The Magistrate judge decided on Tuesday to reduce the house-arrest and isolation conditions imposed on the Jerusalemite activist and member of follow-up committee in the village of Esawyeh, Mohammad Abu Hummos. Abu Hummos explained that the judge decided to end the isolation imposed on him as he was ordered to stay away from the village of Esawyeh since last February. The judge also decided to reduce the house-arrest conditions imposed on him and allowed him to leave his house from 6 a.m. until night time. Abu Hummos added that the judge scheduled a session on 11/10/2015 for discussing the conduct officer’s report and for sentencing. Abu Hummos also noted that he was called for interrogation at Salah Eddin Street police station immediately after the judge made his decision, and the interrogator attempted to terrify him regarding activities in Jerusalem and especially Al-Aqsa Mosque. Mohammad was arrested at the end of last February after leaving Al-Aqsa Mosque (22/2/2015) and an indictment was submitted against him that included charges of assaulting police and preventing the arrest of a child in addition to obstructing the work of police individuals; he was under house arrest and isolation since then. Abu Hummos added that he is currently isolated from Al-Aqsa Mosque for 60 days.
