(JTA) — An Orthodox Jew was found not guilty by a Hague appeals court of failing to produce an ID card on the Sabbath.

The man had faced a fine of nearly $200 for failing to prove his identity when requested to do so by police, under a national ID law.

Orthodox Jews are not permitted to carry any objects in a public place on the Sabbath.
