Elor Azaria to be moved from military base to house arrest

Elor Azaria to be moved from military base to house arrest

However the court ordered him into full house arrest with the only exception allowing him to leave the house to attend Sabbath prayer services with his parents.

He was convicted of manslaughter for killing an incapacitated terrorist and sentenced to 18 months in prison.

Rather, the IDF Prosecution already has agreed that he can move from an open army base arrest to house arrest from July 20, when his three-year army service ends, to whenever the appeal is decided. He was sentenced to 18 months in prison and a demotion to private. He appealed his sentence through his attorney Yoram Sheftel, who claimed that other soldiers who operated in a similar manner didn't receive a similar punishment.

Azaria is slated to be released from the IDF this week, and therefore can no longer remain under house arrest on an IDF base, which was his situation until now.

No Exceptions For Depositing Old Notes: Centre To Chief Justice Of India
There have been instances earlier when the Chief Justice has asked the government to help genuine citizens. The deadline to deposit the bills at the Reserve Bank of India was March-end 2017.

The IDF Appeals Court is expected to make a final decision on Azaria's appeal in the coming weeks after a June 1 meeting between IDF chief prosecutor Col. Sharon Zigagi and Sheftela to reach some kind of deal bore no fruit.

Under home arrest, Azaria has to remain at home except for trips to a synagogue. Minutes later, while Sharif was lying on the ground, Azaria shot him in the head in a shooting that was captured on video by a local resident for the Israeli human rights NGO B'Tselem.

The defense maintained Azaria felt his life was in danger, saying he thought the terrorist could have been carrying a bomb on his body.

Military judges are expected to rule on his appeal on July 30, Israeli media reported.
