New law denies guardianship over kids to parent who murdered or raped in family

The Knesset passes a bill to prevent a parent from having guardianship over a child if that parent is convicted of murdering or attempting to murder the child’s other parent, or if that parent raped or sexually abused one of his children.

An indicted person will have guardianship rights temporarily revoked, while a conviction will lead to permanent revocation, the new law states.
