Shamgar Committee to Submit Recommendations Today

The Shamgar Committee, charged with  formulating guidelines for negotiations dealing with the release of security prisoners, will submit its recommendations to Defense Minister Ehud Barak this morning.

The committee's report is expected to state that there must be clearly defined limits set on the number of prisoners that can be freed in order to recover one Israeli prisoner. Another expected recommendation is the establishment of a special body to deal with the subject should it arise.
