"Get Our Price Last"




Cabinet OKs Amendment
of Israel's Libel Law

ments to Israel's year-old libel law,
enacted during the final days of
the Knesset (Parliament) last
summer and decried vigorously by
many persons in Israel interested
in freedom of the press, were
adopted by the Cabinet here Mon-

agenda Tuesday.
The amendments to the law, de-
nounced as overly drastic by many
journalists, had been recommended

by the Cabinet to consider the pro-

ers of libelous materials, or dis-
tributors of such matter, will not
be held responsible unless they
knew, or should have known,
that the material was libelous.
If the material is deemed libel-

in-chief of a publication would be
held responsible. The Cabinet made

in such a manner that the normal
proportions of the item are exceed-
ed." The Cabinet struck that
clause from the neW version.
The commission that studied the
changes in the libel law was ap-
pointed last year by Prime Minis-
ter Levi Eshlcol. It was headed by
Supreme Court Justice Alfred Wit-
