Russian Compound


Judge: Major Moshe Levy

Police investigator: Omri Awwida

Defence Attorneys: Ma’amun Hashim, Majd Hamdan, Ismail Tawil - not present in the courtroom because he has no entry permit to Jerusalem.


5 cases in the docket


Today we returned to the period when remand extensions at the Russian Compound detention were conducted like conveyor-belt. Five cases, to each 3-5 minutes were devoted, with the aim of reaching agreement between the defence and police, in the shortest time possible. The judge granted the police request to extend detention except in one case. The charges were 'membership and activities in an illegal association' and 'activity against the security of the region'. The suspects sat in silence, and it was only when the lawyer of two of them was not in the courtroom, that they were asked if they had anything to say.


  1. Muhammad Rabbah Shukri A'adi - ID 999838402

Attorney Ma’amoun Hashim

There is an agreement - extension of remand for 7 more days (12.2.12)


  1. Ali Khalil Ali Adris - ID 854710423

Attorney Ismail Tawil - was not present in the court (he does not have a permit to enter Jerusalem), however he filed a letter to the court in which he requests the suspect's release. The investigator sought an 11-day extension. After reviewing the confidential file, the judge granted an extension of 8 days.


  1. Sadan Najach Talaji Abu Ali - ID 852561042

Atty. Majd Hamdan tried to reach an agreement with the police for another 4 days. After that time the case must be transferred to the Prosecution.  Agreement was reached.


  1. Anas Ibrahim Yousef Halauka - ID 853537447

Atty. Ma’amoun Hashim argued that 11 days (which the investigator sought) was too much, because there is no new evidence. But the judge decided on an 11-day extension (16.2.12).


  1. Daoud Suleiman Daoud Haboub - ID 8522366160

Attorney Ismail Tawil  was not present in court, but filed a letter with a request to release the suspect. The investigator requested 11 days and the judge decided on 11 days (until 16.2.12).
