Public Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch demanded the government not impose on the Israel Prison Service (IPS) the management of a facility where infiltrators from Africa will be kept, according to a letter sent to Cabinet Secretary Zvi Hauser on Saturday.

The government is expected to approve the establishment of the facility on Sunday.Aharonovitch wrote in the letter: "The IPS does not have the knowledge and experience to deal with the management of a civilian population, and therefore does not have the right tools to carry out this task."

The operation of the facility, stated Aharonovitch, should be managed by the Population and Immigration Authority, which "is the designated body for enforcement against foreign workers, including infiltrators crossing the Egyptian border."
