The Minister of Internal Security, Yizhak Aharonovich, submitted (Hebrew) a new bill, which will prolong the period during which a meeting between a prisoner suspected of terrorism and his lawyer can be prevented to six months. According to an amendment to the Prisons Order of 2005, meeting between security prisoners and their lawyers can be denied in circumstances where there is suspicion that the meeting may allow the suspects to carry out an offense may endanger themselves or others. Even so, the maximum period for such denials was 21 days.
