MKs will investigate the "Prisoner X" case, the Knesset announced on Sunday night.

The Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Subcommittee for Intelligence plans to hold an "intensive examination" of the circumstances surrounding the Australian Mossad agent Ben Zygier's suicide in prison.

Meanwhile, MKs called for the State Comptroller or a government inquiry commission to probe the events.

MK Uri Ariel (Bayit Yehudi), chairman of the Control Committee in the last five months of the 18th Knesset, requested that the temporary Knesset House Committee reinstate the panel and put him at its head, in order to discuss the incident and vote to form a government inquiry commission.
