Bill to Erase Soldiers' Juvenile Records Passes Preliminaries

A bill erasing the juvenile records of combat soldiers in the IDF passed a preliminary reading in a Knesset cabinet meeting Wednesday. The bill would effectively allow troubled youths who had a clean record in the IDF to continue as armed security personnel in the civilian sector, according to MK Orly Levy-Abekasis (Likud/Yisrael Beytenu), who wrote the bill.

The move would provide the soldiers with a fresh start, enabling them to reintegrate more smoothly into general society.
