Imprisoned Fatah-Tanzim leader Marwan Barghouti denied reports on Wednesday that he has met with Israeli officials during his incarceration. According to Barghouti, he has only met Arab MKs and in no way is he involved in negotiations with the Israeli government. Last week, Israel Radio reported that MK Haim Oron (Meretz) has been secretly holding talks with Barghouti, and could be acting as a go-between for Barghouti and Prime Minister Ehud Olmert. Oron refused to confirm or deny the report, but sources in Meretz said that even if Oron had not been named to speak in Olmert's name, he had held talks with Barghouti. The Prime Minister's Office denied the report.
