Police chief asks AG for investigative panel led by judge to probe Meron disaster — TV

Israel Police Commissioner Kobi Shabtai spoke with Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit and asked him to set up an investigative committee into the deadly crush during Lag B’Omer festivities at Mount Meron in which 45 people were killed, Channel 13 news reports.

Shabtai asked that the committee be headed by a judge, according to the report.

Meanwhile, Channel 12 news says Shabtai has told associates he can’t think of a single thing police did before the disaster that he would now do otherwise, and that he sees no problem with the officers who were involved in the incident continuing in their posts.
