The Jerusalem Magistrate’s Court today (Sunday) ordered Yair Netanyahu to remove the tweet with the addresses of the leaders of the demonstrations in front of the Prime Minister’s House, and to refrain from harassing them for six months.

The decision was made by the vice president of the Jerusalem Magistrate’s Court, Judge Dorit Feinstein, following a request for the prevention of harassment submitted by some of the leaders of the demonstrators, whose details were published by Netanyahu Jr.

The judge noted in her decision, “in my view the publication of identity card and address details, even if these are achievable without special effort, together with the wording as published by the respondent all together create the threatening harassment.”

“Their use was to cause demonstrations near the protesters’ home at any time,” she added.

Netanyahu responded with a series of tweets on Twitter, writing, among other things: “In principle, the judge said that I should remove the tweet (and I did so). Their calls for murder against me, and it did not seem to interest her at all. ”

It will be recalled that this morning the judge fired Yair Netanyahu from the courtroom, but ruled that he must be available during the entire hearing.
