More Remand for "Dahariya 3" as Police Appeal Release

Three Land of Israel activists who were arrested, more than two weeks ago, on suspicion of burning a car and writing graffiti in the Judean Arab village of Dahariya will remain in police custody, pending a ruling on the police appeal of their release to house arrest.

The Jerusalem Magistrates Court issued the release order, Friday, after police withdrew a recommendation to prosecutors to indict the trio. The indictments were expected on Friday, following a hearing on Tuesday, when prosecutors said they had enough.
