The Knesset’s internal Affairs decided to withdraw the text of the bill on the recommendations of all with regard to sexual crimes.
In other words, the police will continue to publish recommendations following the completion of investigations of rape and sexual harassment.
This paragraph was added at the insistence of the Deputy Rachel Azariah («Kulan»).
«I thank the Deputy Amsalem for the fact that the issue of sexual crimes were excluded from this bill. If the law applies to sexual crimes, the former President would have been under the protection of the law, and women who made the complaint publicly would be accused of unreasonable claims».
We will add that in the course of the meeting it was decided to withdraw from the draft of the investigation conducted by the General security service (Shin bet).
The discussion of the bill will continue next week. It is expected to be voted on by the Knesset in its first reading on 27 November.
