The fourth suspect arrested in connection with graffiti and vandalism attacks at
Yad Vashem and other memorials across the country was remanded in the Jerusalem
Magistrates Court on Wednesday.
Defense lawyer Yair Nehorai argued that the Bnei
Barak resident suffers from schizophrenia and was in a special yeshiva framework
for students with mental illnesses.
Judge Shimon Feinberg denied the request to
release him to house arrest and extended his remand until Sunday. Feinberg also
ordered further psychiatric testing.
Three other suspects arrested earlier in
connection with the graffiti attacks were remanded on Tuesday in the
Magistrate’s court, one of whom was released to house arrest.
