JERUSALEM (JTA) —
The Defense Ministry can
hire private investigators to
verify affidavits of women
who declare themselves
religious for military
exemption purposes, acting
Attorney General Meir
Gabai ruled.
He handed down his legal
opinion at the request of
Deputy Defense Minister
Mordechai Zipori who
wanted to know whether
there was any reason why
the ministry could not em-
ploy detectives to check
whether women who de-
clare themselves to be reli-
gious are really so.
However, Gabai added
that although it was legally
permissible he did not re-
gard it as desirable from a
public opinion standpoint
and would recommend that
such investigations be per-
formed by the police.
