While talks were underway for Gilad Shalit’s release in 2009, changes were made in military law regarding the early release of prisoners ‏(security order number 1677‏). These amendments, and the interpretation now being given to the order, allow the IDF and the Shin Bet to rearrest any released prisoner until the end of his or her original sentence, on the slightest pretext.

The Jerusalem small claims court has ordered the police to pay 7,000 NIS to right-wing activist Itamar Ben-Gvir as compensation for an illegal arrest during a demonstration against the deal with Hamas for the release of Gilad Shalit.  Right-wing activist Benzi Gupstein, who was detained but not arrested during the same demonstration, will receive 2,000 NIS in compensation.
