A court granted the State Prosecutor’s request for movement restrictions on Adrian Schwartz, who is about to be released from prison after having served approximately 20 years in prison for having raped a 10-year-old girl. In accordance with the Defense of the Public from Sex Criminals Act the State Prosecutor asked – among other things – to impose house arrest on Schwartz between 21:00 hours and 06:00 for a year. Schwartz’ counsel criticized the decision by the State Prosecutor to make this motion only last week, thus preventing Schwartz from having the opportunity to hold an appropriate hearing of the motion.

Justice Moshe Drori of the Jerusalem District Court scolded the State Prosecutor because electronically overseen house arrest in not possible in some of the settlements in the Occupied Territories. Justice Drori ruled this week that detained prisoner Oron Cohen should be immediately connected to electronic shackling inside his home. He stated that “this is a principle and constitutional problem. As long as the State of Israel maintains Jewish settlements in Judea and Samaria [the Occupied Territories] and provides them with water, electricity, telecommunications and other services… it is hard to imagine a more blatant discrimination between the residents of Beitar Illit and the residents of the State of Israel.” The State is filing an appeal with the Supreme Court.
