      No Questions Allowed Regarding New "Prisoner X"


      Members of Knesset David Rotem (Yisrael Beitenu - Likud) forbade any questions regarding the allegations of a second "prisoner x" being held in an Israeli jail. MK Adi Kol (Yesh Atid) raised the issue during a session of the Constitution, Law and Justice Committee.

      In February, allegations surfaced stating that Israel was holding an unidentified man in a secret jail cell where not even the prison staff knew of his true identity. The prisoner died in 2010.

      At Tuesday's session, when MK Kol raised the issue of another such prisoner, MK Rotem, the committee chairman refused any discussion on the matter.
