The police's head of Investigations and Intelligence, Cmdr. Yoav Seglovitch, slammed an ongoing strike by state prosecutors, and said that 35 suspects - including alleged sexual offenders, violent offenders, suspects alleged to have carried out robberies, dealt in drugs, and illegally possessed arms - have been let go as a result of the inability to prosecute them.

"The strike has been going on for a month, and has led to a severe and significant blow to the ability of law enforcement in Israel, as well as the safety and property of the general public," Seglovitch said.

Police said people indicted on a host of offenses have been let go, adding that some of them were clear public threats.
