Bil'in Cameraman Finally to be Released Tomorrow

Bil'in Cameraman Finally to be Released Tomorrow


by ISM media team, October 25th

A judge at Ofer military court ordered Bil'in cameraman Emad Bornat to be released tomorrow after almost 3 weeks in detention. Emad was seized in the village after a demonstration against the annexation wall on October 6th as he was filming Israeli forces. Whilst in the border police van Emad sustained serious head injuries requiring hospital treatment. A military judge ordered an inquiry into his injuries, casting doubt on the explanation of the border police that communications equipment fell on him.

Whilst in detention at Ofer military prison the Israeli military refused Emad medical treatment in defiance of the instructions of the court. Today a judge ordered the head of the military police to give account to the President of the Appelate Court as to why Emad didn't receive the required treatment.

Emad will be released on 15,000 NIS bail and into house arrest in a neighbouring village to Bil'in. Emad, whose footage featured in the award-winning "Bil'in habibti" is charged with throwing stones and assaulting a border policeman. No date has been set yet for his trial.
