About This Law

This law was actally passed by the Knesset (Israeli Parliament), but was immediately petitioned against to the Israeli High Court of Justice, which has power of judicial review concerning the Knesset's legislation. The Court ordered the law temporarily frozen two years ago, in order to allow the parties to plead their case. Meanwhile, no illegal radio stations could be "laundered" and none were legalized. In early 2002, the Court passed down it's verdict: the law was declared null and void (the first time in Israeli legal history that the power of judicial review has been so actively used, by the way).
