An east Jerusalem resident indicted for throwing stones at Elad head David
Be’eri was released from detention with a restraining order from his home
neighborhood of Silwan until his upcoming trial by the Jerusalem District Court
Twenty-one-year-old Mahmoud Sharif, who was identified as the
man who threw stones at Be’eri’s car after he hit two children in Silwan, will
live at his uncle’s house until his trial. He has been in detention for more
than two months, and his council argued that he had no prior criminal record and
was missing his English studies.
The judge ruled that Sharif could be
released to an area outside of Silwan until the trial. The ruling came over the
objections of the prosecutors, who said that Sharif had been difficult to locate
and arrest in October, more than a week after the October 8 incident.
trial is expected to begin on January 11.
