Rothman: Serious Dilemmas, Moral Considerations

Constitution, Law, and Justice Committee Chairman MK Simcha Rothman on Monday submitted a bill denying terrorists who participated in the October 7 massacre representation by the Public Defender’s Office.

Israel’s law enforcement system is faced with serious dilemmas concerning the prosecution of the participants in the 10/7 murderous attack. Will one indictment be filed against all the detainees for all the acts committed? Which offenses on the law books correspond to the atrocities? When can the death penalty be requested?

According to MK Rothman, “The public defender’s office is designed to legally protect the weak of the country. This body, which necessarily consists of citizens of the State of Israel, cannot on a moral level represent terrorists and fiercely defend them in court.”
