Alleged Mossad agent Ben Zygier, who killed himself in an Israeli prison in 2010, received full legal and psychological services, Public Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch said on Monday.

"Let me say clearly: There are no anonymous prisoners in Israel," Aharonovitch stated during a summary in the plenum of his time as minister. "There is appropriate supervision, laws are followed and there is great concern for the security of the State of Israel, which, in order to protect, sometimes leads to secretive action."

According to Aharonovitch, Zygier was seen by independent and Prison Services' mental health professionals.
