Almagor: Stop the Visit Festival
Israel National News
The Almagor umbrella group of terror-victim organizations demanded a stop on Monday to what it called “the festival of visits by lawyers to terrorists”.
Responding to the arrest of an attorney for bringing money to a terrorist, Almagor Director-General Meir Indor said the visits of lawyers to security prisoners was out of proportion to the visits made by attorneys of normal criminal prisoners. He added that the visits were often used to relay terror instructions into jails and from the jailed terrorists to their colleagues on the outside. Indor called on the Knesset to include visits by attorneys among the activities restricted by “the Shalit Law”, which gets its first reading on Wednesday.
