Approved: 1st Vote towards Life Sentence for Severe Murders

A court will be appointed to establish proceedings for the sentencing of murderers implicated in severe cases, a vote in the Knesset’s Law Cabinet declared on Wednesday.

If passed, convicted murderers will not be able to file for parole for at least 15 years since the start of their minimum 40-year sentence.
