Over the past weekend, South Tel Aviv law-and-order activist Sheffi Paz was arrested after spray-painting graffiti in front of the home of Supreme Court Chief Justice Esther Hayut. The court decided to release her on bail following her actions, but the prosecution appealed the decision.

Paz (Front of the Defense of Southern Tel Aviv) and Doron Avrahami spoke to Erel Segal and David Wertheim about the arrest.

Paz asked of her arrest: "Why is enforcement so selective about us?"

Avrahami also responded and said: "I'm not interested in people's opinions; I'm interested in my life, and we'll do what needs to be done."

At her first hearing, Paz told the judge, "I shouldn't have to attend any hearing here, since I’m a resident of South Tel Aviv, and the law applied there isn't the same law that applies here. The laws there aren't applied to illegal residents, so there's no reason why they should be applied to me either."
