Accused Samaria Young Adult Released from House Arrest

The Jerusalem District Court ordered 19-year-old David Hasdai of the Samaria community of Beit El released from six months of house arrest, imposed as part of an administrative detention order. Hasdai was accused of violating a previous distancing order and price tag vandalism. The court rejected a police appeal to hold Hasdai for a longer period due to lack of evidence. Under administrative detention, police can hold individuals deemed a public threat without trial or charges.
