Judge orders 2 protesters freed, rejecting police demand they be barred from rallies

Nearly all of the dozens of protesters arrested during yesterday’s demonstrations have been released.

The Tel Aviv Magistrate’s Court has now ordered the release of two of the four remaining people under arrest.

According to Ynet, the judge criticized police for demanding that the two men stay away from protests for 15 days, calling it an “extreme” demand that causes “disproportionate harm to the basic right to protest.”

The judge noted in his decision that the two were not violent, and that police do not contest this.

Another person still under arrest is accused of attempting to grab a policeman’s weapon.
