District court once again orders Beit Shemesh city hall to remove modesty signs in extremist neighborhoods

Moshe Abutbol has landed back in court for failure to act properly in dealing with the Haredi extremists in Ramat Beit Shemesh:
The Jerusalem District Court has ruled that Beit Shemesh Mayor Moshe Abutbul and the Beit Shemesh Municipality will be in contempt of court if they fail to remove unlawful modesty signs in the city.

Anti-extremism activists hailed Wednesday’s decision as an unprecedented victory in their campaign to halt harassment and intimidation of women in the city.

The signs, which warn women to dress modestly and not to linger in certain places in haredi neighborhoods of the city, were first ordered removed by the Beit Shemesh Magistrate’s Court in January 2015.

The signs remained in place, however, and the issue was sent to the Jerusalem District Court, which in January 2016 demanded that they be removed, a demand that was not complied with.

In his ruling on Wednesday, Judge Yigal Marzel decried the lawlessness in the extremist neighborhoods of Beit Shemesh, in which, he noted, the authorities appear to have abandoned the area to violent radicals.

Marzel quoted the response of Abutbul and the Beit Shemesh Municipality, in which they described the situation in the city as “a war” and “catastrophic,” where extremists are violent toward IDF soldiers, pedestrians and police personnel, throw stones at people and vehicles, and harass and curse people.

“[The state] cannot reconcile itself to this situation, and all the authorities need to take the necessary steps to restore order and observance of the law,” wrote the judge.

Marzel therefore ruled that if the Beit Shemesh Municipality does not remove the modesty signs by July 6, it will be held in contempt of court and fined NIS 10,000 a day, every day, until the signs are removed.
It's worth noting that the police also have to shoulder some blame, if they wouldn't send riot squads to send a message, or declare a curfew on the neighborhoods in question to send a message. But that's one of the things they can do. They can also impose heavy mandatory fines on violent offenders, and make them do hard labor in prison for their crimes against humanity. And Abutbol can be placed under arrest for refusing to respect the law on his part. He and his staff most definitely should be fine heavily for their failures.
