(Jerusalem Post) Lahav Harkov - Joint List MK Basel Ghattas was arrested after he was officially stripped of his parliamentary immunity by the Knesset Thursday, as an investigation continued following video evidence of him smuggling cell phones, SIM cards and documents to two prisoners convicted of terrorism offenses. Based on intelligence information, Attorney-General Avihai Mandelblit authorized filming Ghattas when he visited Ketziot Prison on Dec. 18. Ghattas met with Walid Daka, who is serving a life sentence for torturing and murdering IDF soldier Moshe Tamam in 1984, and with Bassel Basra, who is serving a 15-year sentence for security offenses, both Fatah members. Ghattas was caught on camera giving documents to Daka, which he put in his pants, and giving Basra four envelopes, in which prison guards found 12 cellphones, 16 SIM cards, two chargers and one headset.
