MK Tibi Demands Info on Alleged Australian Prisoner

MK Ahmed Tibi confronted outgoing Justice Minister Yaakov Neeman about the alleged suicide of an Austrlian citizen who was placed in an Israeli prison for undisclosed reasons. 

"It was published that a prisoner with Australian citizenship committed suicide in one of the prisons in Israel under a different identity," said Tibi.

"Do you permit, sir, that an Australian citizen committed suicide in prison under a false identity and without publicizing the fact that he was a prisoner and detained in Israel?" Tibi asked of Neeman.
