The Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee was not given any official information on the Prisoner X case, Likud Beytenu MK Tzachi Hanegbi, who headed the committee at the time, told Israel Radio on Sunday morning.

Despite that, Hanegbi said he is convinced that nothing that characterizes totalitarian countries was done to the so-called Prisoner X Ben Zygier.
