Meretz MK Mossi Raz says he opposes a government-backed bill that would give police greater powers to carry out warrantless searches, as part of efforts to crack down record levels of violent crime in the Arab Israeli community.

“A worrisome and incorrect decision. There is a lot that can be done with the existing means to fight crime in Arab society — gather up weapons, capture suspects and bring them to justice,” Raz tells Army Radio.
