The Kfar Saba juvenile court on Sunday ordered the release of a girl who was arrested for marching to the former settlement of Homesh, Army Radio reported. Police wanted to detain the girl on the grounds that she violated the Disengagement Law, which prohibits citizens from staying on evacuated land. Judge David Gadol ruled, however, that suspects could not be brought to court based on the Disengagement Law, which was essentially aimed at ensuring the implementation of the pullout from Gaza. "The punitive section of the Disengagement Law has exhausted itself, and as of today it's impossible to bring suspects to court on this basis," Gadol wrote.
