The Tellegras store was probably in the hands of the police

The full details of thousands of Israeli young men and women are apparently in the hands of the police, including videos in which they appear to hold Cannabis and declare their desire to act as Telegras dealers. The reason for this, it was claimed, was that the organization's management did not erase the information as promised. Tlegras, who served as an undercover agent for about a year and a half, was transferred to the police by the organization.

The police hold the full details of 3,000 and 4,000 Telegras dealers, including videos and pictures they seem to hold Cannabis and declare that they want to trade online.

This detail, which until now was only an estimate, is now apparently a fait accompli, according to details provided by sources involved in the affair in Walla's publication.

The police received the access to details with the assistance of the director of Telegras, who was a police undercover agent within the organization for a year and a half, before giving away his friends in exchange for the removal of criminal charges, NIS 1,000 and identity change.

According to the report, the organization's managers did not keep their promise to delete the merchants' details after two months of activity, and with the confiscation of equipment and access to servers and computers, the police could collect the data.

Should traders worry?

While it is not a criminal offense to shoot a video with a Cannabis dish and declare a desire to be a merchant, it is quite possible that some of the thousands of Telegraph dealers will be summoned for questioning.

A calm line for merchants whose details have been revealed can be found in the words of a former senior police official who spoke to Walla, stating that "not all information becomes an interrogation and this can not add weight to any other investigation."

In addition, he stresses that the fact that the details of such a dealer are in the hands of the police does not mean that the merchant will be arrested when a traffic violation, for example, or another offense that is not criminal.

Of the thousands of names in the database, 262 has also identified the names of minors under the age of 18, who may be subject to a disciplinary or therapeutic procedure.

The fall of Tellegras did not stop trading in Cannabis, which continues to run as usual in dozens Other groups In the telegraph.

The police have recently increased their enforcement activity against the offenses of holding and growing cannabis, including entrances to private homes and imposing fines which, according to estimates, amount to over NIS 1.5 million in two months.
