Ramla Magistrate Court revealed on Thursday that a dangerous prisoner escaped from prison The prisoner served as an aide to Central District police interrogation units, encouraging those under investigation to confess their crimes. Israel Radio reported that the prisoner managed to escape while visiting at home after undergoing medical examinations. Police reportedly accompanied him during both the examination and the visit at home. He was apprehended a few weeks later, and an investigating officer was nominated to find out how he escaped. The police initially asked that the incident not be reported, but Judge Zehava Bustan complied with an Israel Radio request to expose the case, without revealing the prisoner's name. The Israel Prison Services reported that this was the third time this prisoner escaped for extended periods of time while on leave from jail.
