Government changes the torture scheme for Yigal Amir

Yigal AmirYigal Amir will soon be moved into a cell with four other prisoners. He has spent an astonishing 17 years in solitary confinement, an unheard-of ordeal, even in the USSR. It is a miracle that after so many years of psychological torture Yigal remains sane and defiant.

His solitary confinement came at a time when Arab murderers in Israeli jails were being given access to satellite TV and cellular phones.

Far from lightening Yigal’s burden, the prison service promised to carefully select his cellmates. They will be criminals barred from the common ward rather than political dissenters like him. Being locked up with those criminals will probably endanger his life.
