Former Institute for Biological Research scientist arrested

A former scientist with the Israel Institute for Biological Research (IIBR) in Ness Ziona was arrested on Monday by the defense ministry's highly secret MALMAB security unit. Investigators from MALMAB raided the home of Dr. Yehoshua Gozas in Ramat Hasharon, confiscating his computer as well as other documents in his home office. Gozas was then taken to MALMAB headquarters in Tel Aviv where he was questioned on suspicion of leaking classified information.
