Knesset's attorney: MKs violating gag order can be prosecuted

Following Knesset members' petitions which exposed the "Prisoner X" affair, the Knesset's Legal Advisor Attorney Eyal Yinon said: "The Knesset isn't a prosecution-free zone" and added that MKs are prohibited from exposing material which is under a gag order. However, he noted that he does not refer specifically to the current affair.
