The State Prosecutor’s Office replied to the petition submitted to the Supreme Court by the Almagor Terror Victims’ Association calling for the publication of the names of the Palestinian prisoners slated to be released as part of the swap deal for captured soldier Gilad Shalit.

The State Prosecution asked that such a publication not be allowed at the moment, claiming that “past experience has shown that when the details of this type of negotiations are discussed in the media, it leads to a radicalization of the other side’s positions.”
