Journal tqft's Journal: Israel Prisoner X? 5

I had never heard of this anyone got any info?
"There would be one more blip of information that would sneak out. Prisoner X - held in a video-monitored, regularly checked, suicide proof cell - had killed himself.

Who was Prisoner X and what had he done to end up secretly jailed in a high-tech cell and locked down under a nationwide media ban?

So anyway I will be recording the program in case anyone cares and can't access it themselves.

          Date of death apparently 15.12.2010
          Could be almost anything
