Likud MKs Danny Danon and Yariv Levin will propose a bill on Sunday in the Ministerial Committee for Legislative Affairs which asks to limit “public petitioners” – non-profit associations and organizations who file petitions against the state even though they are not directly involved in the case.  According to the new bill, non-profits will be able to petition the High Court of Justice only together with the direct victims.  In addition, the associations will be required to present a summary of donations received in the three years prior to the petition.
