The attorney for Boaz Albert praised what he called a "historic step" in his release from jail. Attorney Adi Kedar said that the judge in the case recognized that Albert had been singled out un fairly. He added that Albert still must pay bail and that his vineyards in Yitzhar have suffered in his absence as has his wife and children. Albert was accused of nationalistically motivated crimes but never officially charged or convicted. Police deemed him a threat to society and imprisoned him under administrative detention orders.
