Summary
Up until 8:00 pm on February 12, 2013 the identity of an inmate held in solitary confinement at Israel's Ayalon Prison was known only to a very select group of people. But after the Australian investigative reporting show Foreign Correspondent aired that Tuesday night, the secret was out-"Prisoner X" was a Melbourne man named Ben Zygier and apparently a Mossad agent who'd managed to kill himself inside a suicide-proof cell. But had Zygier been working for the Mossad, or against it? This program is a follow-up to the Foreign Correspondent episode that broke open the Prisoner X case, and in response to which Benjamin Netanyahu called for a media blackout on the story. The program reveals new details about Zygier's activities, giving viewers a better understanding of why the Israeli government wants to keep information about Prisoner X case under wraps.
