The Southern District Attorney filed indictments in the Beersheba District Court on Sunday, charging two security prisoners with bribing a prison guard.

The two defendants, Mohammed Hamed and Ahmad Hashash, are both serving lengthy prison sentences in the Ketziot security prison for national security offenses.

Hashash, a Fatah member, is serving 17 years; and Hamed, who belonged to the Islamic Jihad terror group, is serving 20 years.

According to the indictment, the two offered to bribe a prison guard with NIS 45,000 to smuggle cellphones for them into the prison, so they could be given to other security prisoners, knowing there was a possibility the phones could be used  to promote terrorism or a terror organization.



Immediately after the two defendants asked the guard, he informed Prison Service officers of the incident. The guard then acted as a police agent, the indictment said.
