      Serious Shortcomings at Infiltrator Holding Facility

      Representatives of the Bar Association who visited the Saharonim holding facility in the Negev for those who were caught infiltrating Israel found serious shortcomings last may, according to a report published Tuesday morning.

      The shortcomings were in the medical services and infrastructure, as well as long periods of lockup. The attorneys were exposed to an inmate rebellion in which televisions were thrown and attempts were made to torch the shower stalls. A request by the association's comptroller to receive a copy of the report was denied, contrary to the laws and rules of the review.
