An Israeli court ordered the re-arrest of a dual UK-Lebanese national few days after being acquitted of “terrorism funding” charges.
Israeli media sources said Friday that Israeli court of appeal ordered to re-arrest Faiz Mahmoud Ahmed Sherari pending investigation.
Sherari, 49, was born in Lebanon but had lived in the UK for the last 23 years. He was arrested during a four-day visit to the West Bank in September 2016 and accused of providing cash and mobile phones to Palestinian resistance factions.
He was then released on November 1 after a judge ruled that his confession obtained by the Shin Bet security service had been extracted under physical and psychological pressure and without access to a lawyer.
However, the appeal court overturned the judge’s order.
