      Ministers: Keep Victims of Drunk Drivers in the Loop

      The Ministerial Committee on Legislation endorsed, Sunday, an amendment by Member of Knesset Ze'ev Bielski (Kadima) to the Victims' Rights Law to include victims of drunk drivers. The bill calls for victims of drunk drivers to be appraised of every stage of the legal process against drunk drivers, to the point of providing input.

      Last year, a similar initiative by Bielski against hit-and-run drivers became law.
