The Knesset State Control Committee on Tuesday extended for another one-and-a-half years an exemption for police from videotaping interrogations of certain security detainees on a 7-4 vote, but Committee Chairman Nissan Slomiansky slammed the government fir “disrespecting” the Knesset committee.

According to Slomiansky, the government had years to come up with a new legal framework for addressing the issue in a way that balanced protecting security concerns with detainee rights, but failed to make any progress and shamelessly asked for a five year extension of the exemption right before it was due to expire.

The one-and-a-half year extension was a compromise Slomiansky reached with Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan, who along with Deputy Attorney-General Raz Nizri and other government officials, pushed hard to maintain the exemption.
