The Inquiry Committee for the Escape of Prisoners clarified: "We will not investigate the allegations of pimping in prisons" | Israel today


Following the testimony of Globe Prison Commander Freddie Ben Sheetrit, the committee announced that the prison affair would not be investigated as part of the investigation into the escape of security prisoners. That the decision in the case be made by the competent law enforcement agencies "

The government investigation committee for the incident of the escape of security prisoners from Gilboa Prison announced today (Sunday) that the testimony of prison commander Freddy Ben Sheetrit about a pimp in the prisons will not be examined by committee members.

However, the committee has made it clear that the affair will not be ignored as it may teach about other issues under review.

"About a week and a half ago, we clarified that the issue of treatment of the guards at Gilboa Prison, according to the testimony of prison commander Gen. Freddy Ben Sheetrit, is not a matter for our examination, and that we trust the competent authorities to give their opinion on this issue." Of this decision is that we will not make the legal decision in this case.

This is ostensibly a serious and criminal case, and therefore the decision should be made by the competent law enforcement agencies. "

"We understand that a criminal investigation into this matter was opened by the Israel Police at the time, after which decisions were made, and that following the testimony of Gen. Ben Sheetrit before us, a decision was made to resume the investigation," they explained. In this matter, like the testimony of the district commander, which is now before us.

The opposite is correct.

We can not ignore this affair, insofar as it teaches - or influences - issues that are under our scrutiny, such as the issue of the connection between the work of the commanding officer and the factors with which he comes in contact, and his commanders in general, and the treatment of security prisoners. Like Regev Dahroj and Gondar Arik Yaakov, regarding this issue. "
