Outgoing Justice Minister Prof. Yaakov Ne'eman responded to MKs inquiries regarding the alleged suicide of an Australian citizen in an Israeli prison, saying that "The issue must be looked into. It is not within the jurisdiction of the Justice Ministry and I don’t have any answers on the matter."
Earlier, MK Ahmed Tibi told the outgoing minister that "It has been published that an Australian prisoner has committed suicide in an Israeli prison. He was apparently admitted to the prison under a false identity." (Moran Azulay)
