The Jerusalem District Court ordered the government to award damages to right-wing activist Noam Federman in the sum of NIS 90,000, due to two years’ false imprisonment, part of which was served in administrative detention. At the time, Federman was indicted for his involvement in the Bat Ayin affair. About a year ago, the government rescinded the indictment, and Federman was exonerated. He was subsequently released from the administrative detention. Federman sued the government for damages. This is the first time an individual was awarded damages on the grounds of false house arrest and administrative detention, Israel Radio reported.
