A Charedi man filed a lawsuit against a bus driver after he trapped him on a bus and humiliated him during a bus ride to Beit Shemesh.

The driver, an Arab, was arrested after the incident, convicted of uttering threats, and sentenced to three months probation and NIS 3,000 in compensation.

The civil lawsuit was filed by attorney Menashe Yado of the Honenu legal aid organization, who represents the passenger. In the lawsuit, Yado demands compensation of NIS 75,000 from the driver.

In the lawsuit, Attorney Yado describes the driver's abuse of the passenger: "On April 26, 2021 at around 6:35 am, the plaintiff got on the bus and sat down in one of the seats. After several stops, the plaintiff was left alone on the bus. Then the defendant asked the plaintiff to approach him at the front of the bus near the driver's seat. When the plaintiff arrived near the driver, the driver stopped the bus and pulled out his cell phone, pointed the camera towards the plaintiff's face and told him that he was taking a picture of him. The driver stopped the bus in a section of road where there are no houses and hardly any cars pass through it in the early hours of the morning."... Read More: Arutz-7
