A 16-year-old Kiryat Arba resident has been arrested for allegedly erecting menacing posters outside the home of a Supreme Court Justice Ayala Procaccia, police said Tuesday. The signs reading "death to the judge," "traitor," "child chaser," and "camouflaged criminal" were put up last month at the entrance to her home and in the parking lot outside her building. According to Jerusalem police spokesman Shmuel Ben-Ruby, the suspect has refused to cooperate with police investigators, calling it a "political investigation." The teen was remanded in custody for three days after she refused to sign bail papers, claiming that the Jerusalem court was "not following the rules of the Bible." Police suspect the signs were hung by right-wing activists irate over Procaccia's decision to place under house arrest a 14-year-old suspected of attacking police and security forces during clashes in Hebron. Police said that more arrests were expected in the case.
