Speaking at a remand hearing in Petah Tikva District Court Thursday, Palestinian engineer Dirar Abu Sisi declared: "I am innocent, I'm the deputy director of the Gaza power station and I have no connection to the allegations against me," Israel Radio reported.

"Everything is a lie," he said, "I was question about Gilad Schalit and I responded that I'm not connected to the affair." He added that he was abducted in the Ukraine.

Southern district prosecutors announced that they would file an indictment containing serious charges against Abu Sisi within five days. The prosecution added that it will seek an extension of his remand through the end of the proceedings against him.

The court session was held behind closed doors due to a gag order on the case.
