On Sunday, the police detained a third suspect in the affair. The man was released after being questioned.
The man arrested Monday studied together with Pearlman in Rabbi Meir Kahane's "Jewish idea" yeshiva.
The suspect's associates denied his involvement in the affair, saying that all the recent arrests were nothing more that a regular ritual "aimed at creating a show for the court during Pearlman's remand hearing."
The man's friends told Ynet that a different person has been detained for questioning before every discussion on the matter, and there was no doubt that he would also be releases soon.
The suspect detained on Sunday told Ynet that he was asked by his investigators "if I was familiar with the actions attributed to Pearlman. I told them there was no chance he would do such things, that there was no chance it was him."
His associates say he was approached by the Shin Bet in the past few months and asked to work as a collaborator in exchange for NIS 1,500 (about $400) for each peace of information delivered.
