Ro'i Rieder to be Held Until Sunday

The Jerusalem Magistrates Court extended, Thursday, the remand of Activities Coordinator Ro'i Rieder of the Binyamin Residents' Committee until Sunday for ordering a bus that brought students from the Mercaz Harav yeshiva in Jerusalem to Samaria, three weeks ago, when there was concern about a government demolition of homes in one of the Jewish communities there.

Rieder was arrested Wednesday at the Knesset while trying to make contact with Member of Knesset Uri Ariel. Police sought to extend Rieder's remand by a week, based on secret evidence they showed a magistrate's court judge.
