FORMER Minister of Science and Energy, Gonen Segev was indicted Sunday on charges of possession of drugs, attempting to smuggle drugs and conspiring to commit a crime. Other indictments were filed at the Tel-Aviv District court against Segev's cousin, Moshe Werner, and attorney Ariel Freedman for their alleged part in the affair.

Segev is also charged with using an expired passport -- about a month ago he presented the Dutch Border Authorities with a diplomatic passport from the period he served as a minister. Segev was briefly detained by the Dutch authorities over the expired passport but was then released and allowed to continue his journey to Israel. The day after Segev landed in Tel-Aviv he was already on his way back to Amsterdam. A couple of days later, when he tried to go back to Israel, the Dutch authorities grew suspicious and detained him for questioning again.

Dutch police found a large suspicious parcel in Segev's bag. Segev claimed that attorney Freedman had asked him to transport a package of candies (M&Ms) from Holland to Israel. The Dutch released Segev and sent him on his way after alerting their Israeli counterparts that he would soon be arriving at Ben Gurion International airport in Tel-Aviv. Segev rented a locker at the Amsterdam airport, stashed his bag there and returned to Israel.

Israeli police conducted an undercover investigation and discovered that the bag contained over 30,000 ecstasy pills. The investigation was exposed after Freedman tried to leave Israel. At that stage, police arrested Segev who claimed that he believed the bag contained candy.

Police say there are repeated contradictions in Segev's testimony. In addition, police say Segev forged the date of his expired diplomatic passport so that he could bypass security and smuggle the drugs into Israel.
