Several days before serial rapist Benny Sela escaped from police custody, he sent a letter to Labor, Industry and Trade Minister Eli Yishai, it was reported on Monday. Writing as a "citizen" regarding a "consumer issue," Sela requested that Yishai allow the Barak telecommunications company to enter a legal tender against Bezeq for phone service to the Prisons Service, so that prisoners could use Barak as well as Bezeq. The letter, which was sent to Yishai by Prisons Service registered mail, was given over to the police.
