Monday, June 19, the press service of the party «Our home Israel» reported that Deputy Robert Ilatov submitted a bill to deprive terrorists of Israeli citizenship.
In accordance with this bill, has received the full support of defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman (Yisrael Beiteinu leader), the perpetrators of terrorist acts or involved in terrorist activities and their family members will automatically lose their Israeli citizenship or rights of residence and work permits in Israel.
Robert Ilatov said that the deprivation of citizenship or residence permit would also entail the deprivation of rights and benefits in accordance with the national insurance Act, in particular, benefits for survivors, reports the press service of the Yisrael Beiteinu.
Recall that Lieberman in February 2016, to return the NIDS of the ruling coalition, spoke about the need to deprive terrorists and their families of Israeli citizenship, as one of effective measures of fight against terror.
With a similar initiative in November 2014 was made by the Deputy of the Likud Yariv Levin, who was supported by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
In January last year the Minister of the interior Aryeh Deri submitted a bill allowing the interior Minister to revoke the citizenship of Israelis involved in hostile activities and not located on the territory of the country (for family members of terrorists, the bill does not apply). Currently, the Minister of internal Affairs was forced to issue separate orders for each such case.
In March 2011, the Knesset approved a bill allowing the courts to revoke the citizenship of persons who have committed a crime against state security (terrorists and spies). The authors of this law were deputies from Yisrael Beiteinu’s David Rotem and Robert Ilatov.
A new bill submitted by Filatovym, as explained in the press service of the Yisrael Beiteinu, is different from the law six years ago that it applies to members of families of terrorists, and allows not only to deprive them of citizenship, but also a residence permit and a work permit in Israel.
