Criminal Charges for Those who Don't Serve in Army?

A legal adviser is preparing new stipulation to proposed draft laws that would result in criminal charges and monetary fines against men who don't serve, according to a Maariv news article on Tuesday. No official announcement has been made from government committees, however according to the report, the outline was formulated at the request of the committee chair and in coordination with other Members of Knesset.
