Ban Illegals from Transferring Money of the Country

The Knesset Interior and Environmental Protection Committee approved, Monday, the second and third readings of a bill to prevent illegal infiltrators to transfer the money they earn out of the country. The proposal is part of the struggle against the illegal immigration of tens of thousands of infiltrators into Israel.

The legislation now goes to the full Knesset. At the same time, the government will advance the necessary amendment to the Money-Laundering Law.
