Shin Bet Investigation
Will Not Be Dropped

Jerusalem (JTA) — Israel's
newly-appointed attorney gen-
eral, Yosef Harish, is not ex-
pected to drop the impending
investigation of a "senior offi-
cial" accused of obstructing jus-
tice, Justice Minister Yitzhak
Modai indicated Monday. But
the probe probably will be con-
ducted in secrecy by a special
judicial commission instead of
by the police as originally in-
structed by outgoing Attorney
General YitzhakZamir.
Modai spoke briefly to report-
ers following a meeting with
Harish and Zamir. He also dis-
cussed the affair guaidedly in
an interview published Monday
in the Jerusalem Post. He con-
firmed that he and a majority of
senior Cabinet ministers would
prefer that the entire matter be
dropped for reasons of national
security. '
The Cabinet announced Sun-
day that Harish, a 62-year-old
Tel Aviv District Court judge,
would replace Zamir, -effective
Wednesday. Zamir, who held the
office for nearly eight years, an-
nounced several months ago
that he planned to resign but
agreed to stay on until a re-
placement was found. He said
Monday that he would cooperate
fully with his successor to ease
the transition.
The Cabinet's action triggered
four urgent agenda motions in
the Knesset Monday to debate

the timing of the move and "the
hasty manner in which it was
carried out." Zamir's replace-
ment followed reports over the
weekend that he was deter-
mined to pursue the case which
he saw as a confrontation be-
tween the rule of law and those
who would bend the law in the
interests of national security.
The matter is extremely sen-
sitive because the "senior offi-
cial" involved, though never of-
ficially identified, is generally
acknowledged to be Avraham
Shalom, head of Shabak, Israel's
internal security and counter-
espionage agency, commonly
known as Shin Bet. Shalom is
responsible directly to the Prime
Minister.
According to Zamir, the
"senior official" stands accused
of suborning witnesses to pur-
jury, fabrication of evidence and
other obstructionist tactics to
block an inquiry into the unex-
plained deaths of two Arab ter-
rorists captured alive by the Is-
rael Defense Force on April 13,
1984 after they hijacked an
Egged bus. The pair is believed
to have been beaten to death by
Israeli security agents before
they could be transferred to jail.
Modal said Monday that
Harish will study the case be-
fore he decides what action to
take. He also disclosed that a
date has been set for a Supreme
Court hearing connected with
