MK Kariv Welcomes Decision on Force-Feeding Law

MK Yifat Kariv (Yesh Atid) welcomed on Sunday night the decision to delay a vote on a bill that would allow the force-feeding of hunger-striking prisoners.

“I was glad to hear about the decision to allow members of the Knesset to hold a deep and serious public debate as Yesh Atid had requested," she said, adding that the objections raised against the bill should be treated seriously and “not in a discussion of an hour and a half.”
