Indictment Against Social Activist Daphni Leef Monday

An indictment against social activist Daphni Leef is scheduled to be read, Monday morning, in the Tel Aviv Magistrates Court, charging her with rioting, interfering with a police officer and use of force in connection with a stormy demonstration about half a year ago.

The indictment states that demonstrators attacked police who came to uproot illegal protest tents and that Leef led and encouraged them. It also claims she pushed an officer and resisted arrest.
