Boaz Albert Transferred to "Torah Wing" of Jail


Following the intervention of MK Zevulun Kalpa, Boaz Albert was transferred today (Monday) into the Torah Wing of Ayalon Prison by the Israel Prison Services.

MK Kalpa (Jewish Home) turned to senior officials of the prison authorities to request that they transfer Albert, as he was being threatened by minorities in the facility for his 'settler-looking' appearance, and because he had once killed a terrorist who had broken into his house.

The MK expressed his satisfaction that he was able to help Mr. Albert, and that he was happy the IPS had taken him into consideration in the end.
