Former Mossad director: We have broken the law many times

Former Mossad director Efraim Halevy said that he broke the law many times during his work in the Mossad, but did not reveal where or how.

During a lecture at King’s College in Britain, Halevy admitted that the secret intelligence agencies in general, and especially the Mossad, have broken the law numerous times.

In his lecture, he stated that he studied law and graduated with honours in order to allow him to break the law when necessary.

During the lecture he said that there is no such thing as “absolute justice”, and that “justice for one person is different for another person.”

He also posed the question: “Did I break the law when I did what I did?” He answered “yes”, noting that he would not say where, how and which law he broke because he does not want to spend the rest of his life in prison.
