Slippery Slope

Notes From a Crumbling Democracy

Police: 27 December, 2010

without comments

A prisoner confined at the Ayalon Prison hanged himself to death approximately two weeks ago, in the cell where he is held in solitary confinement. In contrast with previous cases, the Prison Service did not publish an announcement about the suicide, nor were any details given about the man’s identity. This is the 13th prisoner this year to successfully commit suicide while under detention. An article about this subject, which had been published on the Ynet news portal, was taken off the site. Screenshot of a Ynet news flash reporting the suicide; screenshot of a Ynet article reporting the suicide (both items were removed from the Ynet site after the screenshots were captured).
