Supreme Court upholds decision to keep Amir in isolation

December 7, 2010 10:43

The Supreme Court on Tuesday denied an appeal filed on behalf of Yigal Amir, late prime minister Yitzhak Rabin's assassin, requesting that he be moved from solitary confinement.

The decision upheld a Petah Tikva District Court ruling that Amir should remain in solitary confinement for an additional six months. In upholding the lower court's decision, however, the Supreme Court noted that in the future, Amir should be allowed short visits with other prisoners, to hold a prayer minyan, among other reasons.
