Shamgar Member Hits Gov't for Not Dealing with Report

Professor Asa Kasher, who served on the Shamgar Committee on dealing with hostage situations, criticized the government, Friday morning, for not dealing with the committee's recommendations, which were submitted about two-and-a-half years ago.

Interviewed by Kol Yisrael government radio, Professor Kasher said that the cabinet's refraining from discussing the recommendations is, to say the least "improper in the extreme". He added that the committee heard dozens of people, "anyone who had any tie to abductions" and submitted the "most deliberate recommendations one can formulate."
