Remand of Latrun Vandalism Suspect Extended

The Rishon Letzion Magistrates Court extended by three days, Monday, the remand of a 22-year-old resident of Bnei Brak who was arrested, Sunday, on suspicion of arson and other vandalism at a monastery in Latrun, about halfway between Jerusalem and Tel Aviv.

The suspect faces charges of arson, damage to the grounds, trespassing, conspiracy and obstruction of justice. The magistrate noted that there was reason to suspect his release would create further obstruction of justice.
