THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

10 NI LE

Jerusalem (JTA) — Seven
more Shin Bet officials have
asked President Chaim Her-
zog to pardon them for their
involvement in the April 1984
incident in which two Pal-
estinian bus hijackers were
beaten to death while in
Israeli custody, it was re-
ported here last Monday.
The appeals were the first
legal development since the
Supreme Court ruled that
Herzog had the authority to
pardon four other Shin Bet
officials who never were for-
mally charged, including
agency head Avraham Sha-
lom.
It was assumed here that
Herzog would find it difficult
not to grant the pardons, but
the head of the President's of-
fice stressed that Herzog
would decide each case on its
own merits. The names of the
appellants and their positions
within Shin Bet were not
released for publication.
The Supreme Court ruling
came as the result of petitions
to invalidate the pardons by
several lawyers' groups and
civil rights groups. The court
also turned down a request
for the court to order the
government to investigate the
affair, accepting Attorney
General Yosef Harish's state-
ment that the police would
investigate.
The court was asked to rule
following the pardons issued
some six weeks ago, even
though the four officials have
not been tried for their al-
leged involvement in the
cover-up of the killings.
Justices Meir Shamgar and
Miriam Ben Porat upheld the
pardons. They ruled that the
President could grant a par-
don at any stage of a case,
even before trial and out of
any consideration, including

that of security. This means
the president's authority to
pardon individuals is prac-
tically unlimited.
Dissenting Justice Aharon
Barak decided such authority
was in conflict with the
democratic principles of the
State.
The investigation ruling
was unanimous.
In related news, Israeli
police here began the overall
investigation into the affair.
The special investigations
team, headed by police In-
spector General David Kraus,
will question army officers,
Shin Bet officials and politi-
cians, according to local press
reports.
The probe is expected to be
brief, with findings handed
soon to Attorney General
Yosef Harish, who will decide
whether to take legal action.
According to police sources,
the prime purpose of the in-
vestigation is "to clarify the
picture" concerning the
events of the bus hijacking
and the beating deaths of the
two captured terrorists.
The sources described the
purpose of the investigation
as allowing those responsible
in the political echelons and
Shin Bet leadership to "draw
the necessary conclusions" to
avert similar incidents in the
future.
Both Peres and Police
Minister Haim Barley stressed
that the police would conduct
a thorough investigation in-
cluding, if necessary, "the
political echelon." An ex-
pected focus is the meaning
of the statement by Shalom
in his request for a pardon
that he had acted "with per-
mission and authority." Depu-
ty Prime Minister Yitzhak
Shamir was Prime Minister
at the time of the killings.

Anti-Racism Bill
Passed By Knesset

Jerusalem (JTA) — The
Knesset last week passed a
law outlawing racist incite-
ment. Hard on the heels of
this legislation, and not un-
connected to it politically, the
Knesset also passed into law
a bill forbidding meetings
with terror organizations.
On both measures, the
government coalition achiev-
ed a solid majority — since
Labor and Likud had reached
agreement beforehand. But
on both measures, there was
some Labor defection, and
both were hotly. opposed by
the left-of-center opposition in
the Knesset.
The racism bill bans
publication of racially in-
citeful material. The bill
places on the prosecution a
heavy burden of proving in-
tent to commit incitement by

the publication.
This proviso was inserted
into the bill during more than
a year of controversies in the
Knesset Law Committee. In
the eyes of many leftist
Knesset members the proviso
effectively empties the
measure of its content and
renders it toothless.
Victor Shemtov, Mapam
MIC, delivered a scathing at-
tack on the bill, pointing out
that the man against whom it
is principally intended, Kach
MK Meir Kahane, had an-
nounced that he intended
supporting it. And sure
enough, in the vote Kahane
joined with Labor, Likud, Na-
tional Religion Party and
Shinui members in voting for
the bill.
Clearly, his purpose was to
embarrass the government
