Israel Seeks House Arrest for Defendant in 2009 TA Gay Center Murders

Discredited state’s witness, in custody since last week, stays mum during confrontation with Hagai Felician arranged by police.

The State Prosecutor’s Office on Wednesday asked the Tel Aviv District Court to release to house arrest Hagai Felician, who is charged with murdering two people and wounding dozens more in a shooting in 2009 at Barnoar, a youth center for LGBT teens in Tel Aviv. The prosecution cited new evidence that undermines the original indictment.
