The Israeli daily newspapers ran a full feature on the ultra-orthodox Jewish boy who was put in a psychiatric ward for his homosexuality when he health committee ruled he’d be put in hospital.
A judge recently ruled that there were no grounds for keeping in hospital and ordered his release.
It was clear his family forced him to undergo medical treatment because of taboo surrounding his sexual orientation.
