Israel's Attorney General Vowed to Safeguard Prisoner X, Claims Israeli MK

MK Nitzan Horowitz, who on Tuesday found out about Ben Zygier's suicide, says that after his 2010 inquiry about the prisoner's condition, he was assured that the authorities were keeping a close watch Zygier's well-being.

MK Nitzan Horowitz (Meretz) tried to help Prisoner X months before he hanged himself in June 2010 and says he was shocked to hear of his suicide from an Australian television report Tuesday.
