Lieberman on 'Prisoner X': No one disappears in Israel

Former FM says State's conduct in Ben Zygier case was 'without fault'; adds Iran stalling nuclear talks

Acting Chairman of the Knesset's temporary Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee MK Avigdor Lieberman commented Tuesday on the Ben Zygier case, saying that "In Israel people don't just disappear and no one takes the law in their own hands."


Lieberman, the Foreign Minister during Zygier's arrest, added: "All the inquiries show that the relevant elements' conduct was without fault. The prisoner received all his due rights.

"Senior legal officials followed the proceedings closely," he added.


He also commented on the successful Hetz-3 missile test on Monday. "I think the Defense Ministry deserves our warm congratulations for proving Israel's technological superiority and human quality," he said.


Regarding the international talks with Iran, which have commenced on Tuesday in Kazakhstan after an eight months hiatus, he said: "It's clear to us Iran's aim is to stall for time while they forge full speed ahead towards nuclear capabilities."



The Committee acting chairman further said that "It's the international community's duty, based on past experience with North Korea and Iran, to move on to more substantial steps than those implemented so far."
