I can upload a copy (in googling around I saw the program available on some sites) if you want but anyway
"A spokeswoman for Senator Carr says the Minister was initially advised that the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFAT) was unaware of Mr Zygier's detention.

"DFAT has now advised that some officers of the department were made aware of Mr Allen's detention at the time in 2010 by another Australian agency," the spokeswoman said in a statement. ...
Israeli censors today banned media reports based on the Foreign Correspondent program."

Spooks wouldn't hide info from the government would they for their own games.

For reference ASIS is part of DFAT (Foreign Affairs & Trade) (worth reading for the giggles)

Bizarre. Seems he like he was left to live until after some event had passed that he was no longer useful but knew too much to be allowed to roam.

Journal 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?

Now, for the first time, some answers."

The superior court denied his petition, and he now appeals. We affirm.

Estimates of Uncertainty around the RBA's Forecasts

We use past forecast errors to construct confidence intervals and other estimates of uncertainty around the Reserve Bank of Australia's forecasts of key macroeconomic variables. Our estimates suggest that uncertainty about forecasts is high. We find that the RBA's forecasts have substantial explanatory power for the inflation rate but not for GDP growth.
