Ghattas’s detention extended for another day

Balad MK Basel Ghattas’s remand was extended on Monday for another day by Rishon LeZion Magistrate Court Judge Moshe Mizrahi, who said there was a “significant development” in the investigation, and that there are “reasonable grounds to suspect that to release [Ghattas] would endanger public safety and disrupt the investigation process.”

Nevertheless, Mizrahi did not agree to the police request that the arrest be extended for four days, saying that arrest extensions of an MK “should be granted sparingly.”
