    Assistance to International War Crimes Tribunal to be punishable

    Israeli Government Coalition Chair proposes new bill.
    Gush Shalom activists would face 10 years in prison

    While the Sharon government struggles for survival, another effort to hit Israeli democracy and in particular Gush Shalom:

    A bill tabled today at the Knesset (Israeli Parliament) would criminalize any assistance rendered by an Israeli citizen to the International War Crimes Tribunal
    at the Hague. It was presented by MK Zeev Boim, a senior member of the ruling Likud party and chair of the government coalition. Under the bill, any assistance by an Israeli citizen to the Hague Court would be punishable by up to ten years' imprisonment.

    The bill includes a detailed list of proscribed acts, all liable to such a punishment:
    "The provision of any information such as writings, photographs, documents, opinions and reports" as well as "The collection, keeping and preparation and transfer of information" and "The holding of investigations and the writing down of their results".

    Additionally, any association engaged in any such activities would be liable to be disbanded.
