Former Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked (Yamina) spoke to journalists Aryeh Eldad and Ben Caspit on 103FM Monday about the return of Nati Hadad to Israel and the campaign to declare Israeli sovereignty in Judea and Samaria.

Hadad spent two years in a prison in Thiland. He was returned to Israel to serve the remainder of his sentence.

"I had a policy on transferring prisoners from other countries to Israel. In addition, I preferred to avoid extradition to other countries, however, I favor Malka Leifer's extradition," Shaked noted.

"He has an amazing mother who has done a lot to get him back. There was a lot of bureaucracy but after two years we succeeded. The prison in Thailand is not sympathetic to say the least. He can now ask for a pardon from President Rivlin," Shaked said.

Shaked expressed her position on the sovereignty plan currently being pursued under the Trump Administration's 'Deal of the Century.' "We say yes to sovereignty - not to Palestine. After seven years of our being active, even the US president is talking about applying sovereignty. We think that we need to make repairs on the map as we know it, although to this day no one knows the status of the map except Netanyahu. The last released map is bad."
