For its part, the Popular Committee Against the Wall in Bil’in denounced the arbitrary decision by the Court towards  the photographer captive Hamza Bornat, that sentenced him to18 months  in prison and a 5000 NIS fine. This sentence comes after four months of his arrest, knowing that this arrest is the second one after he was arrested two years ago and sentenced  to  9 months in prison because he took part in a peaceful demonstration in Bil’in.
