UTJ and Shas to Support Libel Law Amendment


UTJ and Shas are expected to support the amendment of the libel law in the Knesset plenum Monday night. The amendment enlarges libel compensation to 300,000 NIS without actual proof of damage.

The new amendment also requires requesting a response to the libel from any party that might be damaged by it, as well as the publication of the response, regardless of its length.
