Bill Makes It Easier to Re-Jail Freed Terrorists
Deputy Knesset Speaker MK Danny Danon (Likud) is speeding up the legislation of a bill that would make it possible to rescind the pardon given to a freed terrorist if he goes back to terror activity.

The terrorist would then go back to jail and complete the term he had been serving when he was pardoned.

The bill passed in the first reading on May and has the backing of the Ministry of Justice. "The threat has become a clear and present one," Danon said Sunday. "The hundreds of terrorists freed in the Shalit deal need to know that the slightest slip back toward terror will put them back behind lock and key forever."

The bill stipulates that recidivist pardoned terrorists will be tried by a speedy administrative process. If it is proven that the person has gone back to terror, the pardon will be annulled and his sentence will be reactivated. The smallest terror offense would suffice to place the process in motion.
