A Petah Tikva Magistrate Court on Thursday extended the remand of hit-and-run suspect Shushan Baraby an additional 6 days until September 4.

Baraby has denied he was involved in the accident or even at the scene of the crime.

He has been in police custody for 10 days already and the police had asked to hold Baraby for an additional 11 days pending completion of the investigation.

During the hearing, Baraby's defense attorney seemed to undermine the police's case when the police admitted that they don’t have an expert report linking Baraby to the scene or proof that Baraby had run a red light. Baraby's defense attorney also highlighted his willingness to submit to DNA testing, something one would not expect if he had something to hide.
