Here is how Israel's Ministry of Foreign Affairs describes the part of the extradition process Avrohom Mondrowitz is now in:
Under Section 7 of the Extradition Law, the magistrate may then order him/her to be held in custody for up to 15 days pending receipt of the petition for extradition, and may extend the custody for a further 15 days. Upon special application by the Attorney General, the magistrate may extend the requested person's arrest up to a maximum, aggregate period of 60 days. Once the petition has been filed in the District Court to have the person sought declared extraditable, then pursuant to Section 5 of the Extradition Law, the District Court may order that the person sought be held in custody until the end of the proceedings.
Pursuant to Section 22 of the Extradition Law, at any time during extradition proceedings the requested person may appeal the decision to continue his arrest by petitioning the court for his/her release.
In other words, what seems to have taken place yesterday was that Mondrowitz was ordered to be "held in custody until the end of the proceedings."
What now may happen is an appeal of that decision by Mondrowitz, "pursuant to Section 22 of the Extradition Law."
The entire process is summarized by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs here.
Any Israeli legal experts out there? If so, please fill us in on how the process actually works. Thanks!
