Life without Parole’ Bill Passed


Breaking News: the government just passed a bill intiated by MK Alyelet Shaked which will prevent murderers and terrorists from being pardoned or being released from prison on parole.

MK Naftali Bennett (Jewish Home) said after the vote that “Today we put an end to the ‘kill-and-release’ deal, a deal only existing in Israel. According to the law, in severe cases of murder, judges can issue a life sentence without possibility for parole. If the State of Israel did not uphold simple morals which indicate that murderers should die in prison, from now on we will have no other choice.”
