MK Gal-On: Is it Okay to Approve Secret Arrests?

Meretz MK Zahava Gal-On addressed outgoing Justice Minister Yaakov Neeman in the Knesset on Tuesday regarding a report which alleges that an Australian citizen committed suicide while secretly being held in an Israeli prison.

"Does it look good that the prime minister meets with the editorial committee to prevent the publication of an incident that can embarrass Israel. Is it okay to approve secret arrests in the name of security needs or security issues?"asked Gal-On. 

"Today we hear that anonymous prisoners have committed suicide and no one knows of their existence," she added.
