Shas fined NIS 37K for handing out 'election charms'

Published: 01.21.13, 17:24 / Israel News

Central Elections Committee Chairman Elyakim Rubinstein fined Shas NIS 37,000 (roughly $9,900) for handing out religious charms and blessings despite the explicit legal ban prohibiting such actions ahead of the elections..


In his ruling, Justice Rubinstein said: "This is a clear violation of an order whose essence was to outlaw the use of (religious) blessings in election propaganda." (Telem Yahav)
