Ghattas remand extended as his Knesset office is sealed

The Rishon Lezion Magistrate’s Court extended the remand of Joint List MK Basel Ghattas by four days on Friday as police continue investigating him for giving cellular phones to security prisoners he visited in jail.

Police told the Court that there is firm basis to the concerns that releasing Ghattas would endanger the public and obstruct the investigation. He is suspected of smuggling cell phones, SIM cards and documents to two prisoners convicted of terrorism offenses.
