Franco to Report to Court on Unit's Dissolution


Police Commissioner Yochanan Danino and Yoav Seglovich, in charge of investigations and intelligence for the Israel Police, were summoned to appear before the Supreme Court, Monday morning, to respond to an appeal by Member of Knesset Orit Zuaretz against the department's decision, a few months ago, to break up the Sa'ar branch, which deals in human trafficking. MK Zuaretz chairs the Knesset Subcommittee on the Trafficking of Women.

The branch was broken up as a cost-cutting move, according to Kol Yisrael, government radio.
