Man arrested at protest: Police didn’t know why I was taken in

Nahman Geva, a 51-year-old protester who spent the night in a jail cell after being arrested in yesterday’s protests, tells Walla news he has been barred from protesting for 15 days.

“At the end of the restraining order period I’ll go back to protesting,” he says, adding he is not frightened of being arrested again. “What frightens me is what’s happening in the country and what this government and Knesset are rushing toward.”

He says he doesn’t know why he was arrested, after protesting at Karkur Junction yesterday. Police sprayed demonstrators with foul-smelling water and when he did not move, he was taken in.

He says throughout his questioning by police it seemed they did not know themselves why he had been arrested, giving various, changing justifications.

“They really didn’t know,” he says.
