Court extends remand of Haredi arrested in Beit Shemesh

December 29, 2011 16:56

The Jerusalem District Court ruled on Thursday to extend the remand of a Haredi man arrested for violence during protests in Beit Shemesh earlier this week.

Moshe Friedman is charged with common assault, assaulting a public servant and insulting a public servant, after he allegedly used force to prevent a TV crew from interviewing a municipal official during a protest against gender segregation in Beit Shemesh on Monday.

Friedman, who allegedly called the municipal official a Nazi, is also charged with obstructing a police officer during the same incident.

A second charge against Friedman alleges that he spat at a reporter in a separate incident in September.
