Committee to Consider No Parole for Security Prisoners


The Knesset Constitution, Law and Justice Committee is scheduled to hold a hearing, Monday, on a bill by Member of Knesset Ayelet Shaked to deny the president the ability to pardon or lighten the sentence of security prisoners.

The measure is intended as a hurdle to hostage taking as a means to gain the release of security prisoners, who must be pardoned to effect the release.
