The director-general of the Hadrei Haredim news site is set to be released with certain provisions on Monday after his remand was extended three times.

The man, along with a number of other employees at the ultra-orthodox news site, is charged with extortion, allegedly threatening to publish content that would damage people's reputations unless they paid large sums of money.

Police will ask the Jerusalem Magistrate's Court to release the man to house arrest, according to Army Radio.
