Bill blocking false-alarm emergency callers’ phones heads to final vote

Anyone who pranks emergency hotlines will find his or her phone line blocked, according to a bill approved for a second and third (final) reading by the Knesset Law, Constitution and Justice Committee Monday.

The phone line of anyone who makes a false-alarm call to an emergency line will not work for four days, and the length of the blockage will increase to two weeks if the offense is repeated. If the behavior continues, the line can be permanently disconnected.
