State Prosecutor Amit Aisman lashes police over a recent spate of arrests of anti-government protesters and protesters calling for a ceasefire, in a letter obtained by the Haaretz daily.

Aisman highlights the arrest of a woman who spray-painted “1,400” near the house of a Likud MK, asserting that there was no justification for the arrest.

The top state attorney also criticizes the arrests of Arab Israeli community leaders who were planning to demonstrate in favor of a ceasefire in Gaza.

Aisman says these arrests were not justified either and that charging him with intent to commit treason had been way out of line.
