Katz Supports Life Sentence without Parole Law


Transportation Minister Yisrael Katz on Friday expressed his full support for the bill that will be submitted to the government on Sunday and which states that in exceptional cases, murderers could receive a life sentence without the possibility of parole.

"The law is justified and and I fully support it. The Justice Minister opposes the bill on the grounds that it 'would prevent flexibility during negotiations'. Not flexibility, madam minister - extortion and submission," wrote Katz on his Facebook page.
