Police Insp.-Gen. Moshe Karadi emphasized Monday morning that the Israel Police did not eavesdrop on telephone conversations in the Prime Minister's Office. "If there is a policeman who makes use of this sensitive instrument illegally, it's forbidden [for him] to wear the uniform of the Israel Police," Karadi said in an interview with Army Radio. Karadi added that these days, the police listen in on the conversations of several dozen Israeli citizens, but that these cases of wiretapping are authorized by the court. The issue of illegal wiretapping recently arose in the case of former justice minister Haim Ramon, where it was revealed that police recorded phone conversations between the female soldier accusing Ramon of sexual harassment and her army commander.
