New Knesset law bars police recommendations for indictments

By a majority of 59 to 54 votes, the Knesset early Thursday passed the controversial law prohibiting the police from publishing recommendations for indictment and passing them on to the attorney general at the end of criminal investigations. The vote came at the end of a 48-hour opposition filibuster and divisions in the government coalition. The law will not apply to investigations already in progress, including the police probes against Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu. MK Yair Lapid, head of the Future party, is to challenge the law before the High Court later Thursday.
