Jewish Prisoner Petitions for Visitation with Family
The family of a Jewish man serving 15 years on prison are requesting more lenient visitation rights. Shlomi Dvir and two other residents of Judea were convicted of plotting to attack an Arab school in retaliation for an Arab terrorist attack. Dvir is the father of six children, all minors. His wife and family complained that they are only allowed to visit for a limited time and the father is held in a separate room. They are petitioning the Supreme Court on the matter.
