Shin Bet wants to ban lawmakers meeting with prisoners

Internal Security Minister Gilad Erdan says that the Shin Bet security agency wants lawmakers banned from meeting with security prisoners.

Erdan tells a Knesset committee that he had spoken with the head of the Shin Bet about the issue.

“As far as he is concerned there should be a blanket ban on any MKs meeting with security prisoners,” he says, according to Walla.

The move comes after police launched an investigation into Arab MK Basel Ghattas, who is suspected of smuggling phones to inmates in Israeli prison.
