Law Would Prevent Lawyer Meetings for Terror Attacks


The Knesset Interior Committee on Monday authorized for its second and third reading a law that would allow prisons to prevent meetings of terrorists with their attorneys, if there is a suspicion that the meeting could be used to plan terror attacks. The meeting could be prevented for as long as 96 hours, under the proposal, allowing security authorities to act to prevent the attack. With a court's permission, the meeting could be postponed for up to a year.

The law is set to come up for a vote in the Knesset next week.
