C'tee OKs Victim Input in Hit & Run Plea Bargains

The Knesset Constitution, Law and Justice Committee approved, Monday, a bill to give the victims of hit-and-run accidents the right to express a position regarding a plea bargain and to receive information on the process, including a look at the indictment and the hearing schedule. The victim would also be allowed input into pardons and parole.

The proposal now goes to the full Knesset for votes on the second and third reading required to make it law.
