State Prosecution appeals against Hebron shooter's release

The State Prosecution on Friday appealed to the Supreme Court against the previous day's decision by the Jerusalem District Court to hold Ze'ev Braude, the Kiryat Arba man who wounded two Palestinians in Hebron last week, under house arrest only. On Thursday, a day after Jerusalem Magistrate's Court Judge Malka Aviv rejected the state's request to remand Braude in custody until he is indicted on the charge of assault with aggravated intent, Jerusalem District Court Judge Orit Efaal-Gabay partially accepted the state's appeal and ordered him placed under house arrest. However, a dissatisfied State Prosecution called for Braude to remain in police custody until a decision on an indictment is made.
