In a discussion about the case of a woman suspected of starving her 3-year-old son, Jerusalem District Court Judge Moshe Ravid said that he is inclined to instruct the haredi mother to move, together with her family, away from the capital's Mea She'arim neighborhood. The fact that the defendant's home is in Mea She'arim is preventing law enforcement officials from supervising her behavior, Army Radio quoted Ravid as saying. The final ruling on the matter is expected to be given in the next weeks.
