Subcommittee to Investigate Prisoner X

The Intelligence Subcommittee of the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee decided, Sunday, to carry out an intensive investigation of all aspects of the case of Prisoner X, identified as Australian-Israeli Ben Zygier, who was found dead in his cell in December 2010. The decision followed word by Australia that it is investigating the case.

Media reports that surfaced last week linked Zygier to a Mossad intelligence operation that sold electronic equipment to Iran and to the elimination of senior Hamas terrorist Mahmoud Al-Mabhouh in 2010 in Dubai.
