'Detainee X' is still alive
Ben Zygier is dead and buried but the case of 'Detainee X' lives on. It’s high time for a serious and independent inquiry.
Ben Zygier, the Mossad agent who was arrested over suspicions that he put state security at risk and was later found hanging in his isolated cell, is now buried under a black marble plaque in Melbourne, his city of birth. He left behind a wife and two daughters, parents and a sister, friends and acquaintances.
