One of the lawyers of Dirar Abu Sisi, a top engineer at Gaza's power plant currently imprisoned in Israel, has denied reports published in Der Spiegel according to which Israel may have abducted the Gazan engineer because he has information on kidnapped soldier Gilad Shalit.
According to the lawyer, Smadar Ben-Natan: "He has no information relating to Gilad Shalit. He was not involved in that in any way and if Israel believed he has such information when they abducted him (according to foreign reports) than they made a grave error. It's time for the State to admit they made a mistake and allow him to return to Ukraine." (Naama Cohen-Friedman)
