Keren Barak, a lawyer representing a female guard who says she was raped by a security prisoner at the Gilboa Prison, tells a Knesset panel debating the scandal that it was not an isolated case.

“A year after the rape, the security prisoner tried to rape another female soldier — don’t say you didn’t know,” she says.

Barak’s client alleges she was among several female guards “pimped out” by senior prison officials in a bid to control the security prisoners.
