Ministers again postpone bill on electronic tracking of domestic violence offenders
The Ministerial Committee for Legislation again pushes off a bill to introduce electronic tracking of domestic violence offenders.
Last week the committee pushed off discussing the legislation for six months, but agreed to reconsider it today after yet another woman in Israel was murdered by her partner — who had previously been investigated for such threats.
Last week National Security Minister Itamar Ben Gvir said that he intended to bring his own version of the bill that would include an increased emphasis on defending men from false accusations.
The current version was put forward in the previous government by then-justice minister Gideon Sa’ar.
Sa’ar slams today’s decision as “irresponsible,” blaming Ben Gvir for showing “an indifference to human life.”
