AG rules against demolishing homes of mentally ill terrorists

Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit rules against the demolition of the homes of terrorists who cannot be held responsible for their actions due to psychological disorders.

The decision comes in a letter responding to a query from Defense Minister Avidgor Liberman who had railed against an IDF and Justice Ministry decision last month to not destroy the home of a terrorist who stabbed to death an Israeli man in the Old City of Jerusalem after the stabber’s family showed he had a history of mental issues.
