Have I Got A Deal For You

Look who’s been a very naughty boy:

Former minister Gonen Segev allegedly approached the Sri Lankan army and offered to provide it with Israeli weapon systems at a cheaper rate than they were paying, the Defense Ministry confirmed on Thursday.

Segev also proposed that he be appointed the head of a Sri Lankan mission to Israel to acquire the weapons, and offered in return to use his influence as a former minister to get Israel to help apprehend the heads of the Tamil rebel organization.

Reports about Segev’s activities in Sri Lanka reached the Defense Ministry in Tel Aviv, and the head of the department for exporting security assistance, Yossi Ben-Hanan, met with Segev and warned him he was contravening the law.

A senior ministry source said that Segev’s behavior in Sri Lanka, and particularly the impression he created that they were being overcharged for weapons systems, had caused damage to Israel’s security industries and reputation.

I wonder if he also offered them ecstacy at a cheaper rate.
