The court rejected the request of the lawyer Elora Azariah, Yoram Sheftel, to postpone the execution of sentence for 30 days to prepare an appeal to the Supreme court.
Considering the request of the lawyer, the head of the court of appeal major-General Doron Felis went on a break to discuss the situation with representatives of the Prosecutor’s office. When he returned, he said that the prosecution sees no reason for extra delay. However, the prosecution agreed to provide the accused and his lawyer «a few days».
Thus, according to the court ALOR Azariah must begin to serve his sentence on August 9.
Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman had earlier urged the family of Azariah Elora not to file a new appeal against the decision of the court, and to appeal to the chief of staff Gadi Eizenkot with Amnesty.
