The police's head of Investigations and Intelligence, Cmdr. Yoav Seglovitch,
slammed an ongoing strike by state prosecutors, adding that 35 suspects -
including alleged sexual offenders, violent offenders, suspects alleged to have
carried out robberies, dealt in drugs, and illegally possessed arms - have been
let go as a result of the work dispute.
"The strike has been going on for
a month, and has led to a severe and significant blow to the ability of law
enforcement in Israel, as well as the safety and property of the general
public," Seglovitch said.
Police said people indicted on a host of
offenses have been let go, adding that some of them were clear public threats.
