Aharonovitch: Nothing to Hide Regarding Arab Prisoner

Internal Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch addressed in the Knesset on Wednesday questions regarding Palestinian-Arab prisoner Arafat Jaradat who died while being held in an Israeli prison. 

"The Palestinian pathologist is interested in compiling a report on injuries found on the prisoner's body," said Aharonovitch. 

"We have nothing to hide. We have to wait for the autopsy results from the morgue," he said, adding that Israel does not act in secrecy.
