MKs may need to sign non-disclosure forms before learning state secrets

Lawmakers may have to sign non-disclosure agreements before meetings in which they are exposed to confidential information, Knesset House Committee chairman Yoav Kisch proposed Monday.

Kisch called the meeting after a confidential report by former Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee chairman Tzachi Hanegbi (Likud) on 2014’s Operation Protective Edge leaked to the press, but said there are other confidential committees and subcommittees in the Knesset, and the meeting addressed how to prevent the general phenomenon of leaking.
