Shaked pushes bill to stiffen penalties against rock throwing

Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked on Thursday announced that she will be aggressively pushing forward with legislation to increase the penalties for persons throwing rocks with fast-track consecutive meetings with the Ministerial Committee on Legislation starting on sunday.

Little detail was provided by Shaked’s spokeswoman, but she confirmed that the legislation would be similar to that which former justice minister Tzipi Livni had started to push forward.

In November 2014, the cabinet approved an amendment to the criminal law that, if passed by the Knesset, would increase the maximum penalty for people who throw rocks at vehicles to 20 years in prison.
