IOW

Jerusalem (JTA) — Attorney
General Yosef Harish advised
the Supreme Court last Sunday
that a police investigation has
begun into the Shin Bet affair
and will exempt no one involved
in the episode, "from the lowliest
private soldier in the field to the
top political level."
The probe will focus on alle-
gations that Shin Bet chief
Abraham Shalom and three of
his senior aides fabricated
evidence and gave perjured
testimony at quasi-judicial in-
quiries into the unexplained
deaths of two Arab bus hi-
jackers in custody of security
agents in April, 1984. Shalom
and his aides, who have since
resigned from Israel's internal
security service, were given
blanket pardons by President
Chaim Herzog last month.
Harish told the court that the
police have not yet called anyone
for questioning but are in the
process of gathering informa-
tion. He said they were studying
the records of the two earlier in-
quiries where the alledged cover-
up occurred.
Harish appeared before a
panel of three justices, headed
by Supreme Court President
Meir Shamgar, to argue why the
high court has no need to order
the government to open an in-
quiry by the police or establish
a judicial commission for the
purpose, inasmuch as the matter
is already under investigation by
the former.
Shamgar and his associates,
Justices Miriam Ben-Porat and
Aharon Barak, retired after a
long morning in a packed cour-
troom, to consider their decision.
It is expected soon.
The court had ordered the
government to show cause why
an investigation of Shin Bet
should not be lunched. It acted
in response to petitions by
several groups which are also
seeking to have the Presidential
pardons invalidated. Harish

recommended to the govern-
ment at the time that it
establish a judicial commission
of inquiry. But this proposal was
rejected by majority vote of the
Cabinet.
Harish preferred a judicial
commission which he felt would
be better equipped than the
police to protect tilt secrecy that
surrounds Shin Bet operations.
But under the circumstances he
was forced to bring in the police
because, as he explained to the
ministers, he could not face the
court without one or another
form of inquiry under way.
To have done otherwise,
Harish said, would have resulted
in the court ordering a probe, to
the grave embarrassment of the
government and himself.
Harish also argued before the
court in defense of the Presiden-
tial pardons which he maintain-
ed were entirely legal and with
ample precedents. Lawyers for
the challenging groups insisted
that the President may pardon
only offendors. Since Shalom
and his aides were never formal-
ly charged, tried or convicted of
any offense, they have no status
before the law as offendors, the
lawyers contended.
In another development, the
Supreme Court handed down a
decision in the case of former
Shin Bet operative Rafi Malka
who brought charges against his
former chief, Avraham Shalom.
But the nature of the ruling was
not disclosed. The court hear-
ings have been held in tight
secrecy.
Malka was suing for re-
instatement in Israel's top secret
internal security service from
which he had been dismissed by
Shalom. He is one of three
former Shin Bet agents who ac-
cused Shalom of ordering the
murder of two Palestinian bus
hijackers in custody of security
agents in April, 1984 and later
engaging in an elaborate
cover-up.

Israel Reports On
New Weapon's Success

'Ibl Aviv (JTA) — Israel's
newest weapon, a ship-borne
missile called Barak (Lightning),
has been successfully testfired,
Israel Radio reported recently.
The radar-directed short-range
missile is designed for fast at-
tack naval craft. A land-borne
version known as Adams (Air
Defense Advanced Mobile sys-
tem) can be fired from moving
vehicles against attacking
aircraft.
Both were developed and pro-
duced by Rafael, the state-owned
weapons development authority,
jointly with Israel Aircraft In-
dustries, for defense against
small boats, shore targets, low-
flying aircraft and helicopters.
The Barak, with a range of 10

kilometers, is launched vertical-
ly, which gives it a 360 degree
horizontal approach to an
attacking target. Only a few
seconds elapse between detec-
tion of the target and the "kill",
according to information sup-
plied by Rafael. The missile lifts
off for a dozen meters and then
locks into its target by radar and
is detonated by a proximity fuse.

Rafael - is trying to attract
customers abroad for the new
weapon. Its sales promotion
material notes that recent com-
bat experience, notably the
Falklands Islands war,
demonstrates the need for a
lightweight, short-range defense
system for fast attack craft.
