Joint List MK  Basel Ghattas was ordered to remain under house arrest for an additional 10 days as police continue their criminal probe into the parliamentarian.

Ghattas was arrested on Thursday shortly after being stripped of his parliamentary immunity on suspicion of conspiracy, fraud and breach of trust, for bringing cellphones and SIM cards to two Fatah prisoners – one of them serving a 37-year sentence for murder – in Ketziot prison.
