State prosecutors announce that they are reopening the case of female prison guards who claimed they’d been “pimped out” to inmates at Gilboa Prison in the north, and intend to file indictments related to the scandal.

A statement from prosecutors say they have accepted an appeal over the decision to close the case without charges, and now plan to file indictments against the former Gilboa Prison commander, Bassem Kashkosh, and the prison’s former intelligence officer, Rani Basha, on charges of fraud, breach of trust and failure to fulfill their duties.

Prosecutors also say that charges will be filed against imprisoned Palestinian terror convict Mahmoud Atallah, who is suspected of raping female prison guards while other officials looked the other way.
