Petah Tikva's Magistrate's court on Wednesday extended the remand of Yosef Espinoza by seven days. Espinoza was arrested on Tuesday on suspicion that he was involved with alleged Jewish terrorist Ya'acov Teitel. Following the court's decision, Espinoza's lawyer Zion Amir denied the allegations his client was facing, said Espinoza was cooperating fully and expressed his confidence his client would soon be released. Espinoza, Teitel's neighbor at the Shvut Rahel settlement, was initially detained two weeks ago after his association with Teitel came to light, but he was released after just a few hours. He was taken in by the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) again on Tuesday on suspicion of collaborating with Teitel, but it was not clear in what capacity. Espinoza, 47, is a father of two. Police on Tuesday refused to allow Espinoza's lawyers to meet with him.
