      MK Regev: MKs are not above the Law

      MK Miri Regev (Likud) welcomes the opinion of the Knesset Legal Advisor by which MKs who violated the gag order on the Ben Zygier affair may be prosecuted.

      Regev will submit a bill Tuesday that will legislate immunity removal from MKs who violate gag orders or censorship law, requiring their prosecution.

      “MKs are not  above the law, and headlines do not justify threatening state security,” explains Regev.
