MK Ghattas reportedly admits smuggling phones to prisoners

Arab MK Basel Ghattas reportedly confessed to police interrogators that he did smuggle miniature cellphones and notes to Palestinian prisoners serving time for terror acts at Ketziot Prison south of Beersheba.

Ghattas was questioned by police today and confirmed the allegations against him, but said his actions were meant to be humanitarian, Channel 2 reports.

The government wants to strip Ghattas of his parliamentary immunity so that he can face charges for the smuggling.
