Israeli ministers okay bill to prohibit pardon of terrorists

The cabinet had been meant to vote on the bill last week, but Netanyahu stripped it from the agenda due to legal issues in the wording.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's cabinet on Sunday approved a bill that prohibits granting pardons to terrorists.
The cabinet was meant to vote on the bill last Sunday, but Netanyahu decided to cut it from the agenda consulting with Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein, who found legal issues with the wording of the bill.  
Weinstein took issue most with the fact that the bill’s description does not mention a prohibition on releasing terrorists within the framework of negotiations, while the proposed law would apply to all terrorists in custody. Weinstein added that it is also problematic to determine such considerations ahead of time, thus it was decided to pass the bill to the cabinet for review.
Habayit Hayehudi party members were furious with the postponement of the vote, as bill was part of a deal between Habayit Hayehudi and Yesh Atid, under which the former supported the latter’s surrogacy bill in the cabinet last week.
A senior Habayit Hayehudi official told Haaretz that “Netanyahu gave in at the last minute. In contrast with agreements, he canceled the vote on the bill and his decision will have ramifications on the coalition’s ability to function. We mustn’t forget: Netanyahu released more murderers while in office than any other prime minister. Every day that this law goes unpassed is a danger to Israeli citizens.”
At Bennett’s urging, Netanyahu committed to bring the bill to the cabinet for discussion this week.
