Israel’s High Court of Justice rejected a petition challenging a law that seeks to prevent a pardon for anyone who killed a prime minister for ideological reasons. The petition was filed by a right-wing activist, Avigdor Eskin, who said the law violates basic laws on individual rights because it was specifically drafted to prevent amnesty for Yigal Amir, who assassinated Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin in 1995.
