Australia acknowledged for the first time that the mysterious prisoner X worked for the Israeli government but refrained from confirming that he was working for Mossad.
Australian`s Jewish community today welcomed Australian and Israeli governments decision to initiate probe into the circumstances surrounding the death of Prisoner X.
Australia has asked Israel to provide information about the death of Prisoner X, a jailed Australian-Israeli with links to spy agency Mossad.
34-year-old Zygier, also known as Ben Allen or Ben Alon, has been allegedly working Israel`s spy agency Mossad before being arrested and jailed in February 2010.
Australian television network ABC aired an investigative report on Tuesday revealing that Zygier, an Australian national who was held in isolation at the Ayalon Prison in Ramla, had died in a high-security cell in late 2010.
Amid uproar in the international media, Israel today partially lifted a more than two years of gag order placed on the case of Prisoner X.
