Jerusalem, ALRAY - Haifa District Court dismissed on Monday morning an appeal submitted by defense lawyers of Sheikh Raed Salah, leader of the Northern Islamic movement in 1948 occupied Palestine, against his detention.
Israel’s Channel 7 reported that the court decided to keep Sheikh Raed Salah under arrest until the proceedings of the court against him have been concluded.
The Haifa District Court’s Justice stated that Sheikh Raed Salah’s remarks represent a serious threat to public safety, adding that his arrest is to continue for incitement to terrorism.
The Israeli Public Prosecution has charged Sheikh Raed Salah with “incitement” for statements he had made in the framework of freedom of speech which is guaranteed by law.
On August 15, Israeli authorities arrested Sheikh Raed Salah, after breaking into his house in Umm al-Fahm in 1948 occupied Palestine and searching it.
