The Knesset Ethics Committee suspended Joint List MK Ghattas from all parliamentary activity for six months on Monday.

The decision was approved by the committee 3 against one. Ghattas is still able to take part in voting.

Ghattas is suspected of smuggling phones to Palestinian prisoners and has accused authorities of “fabricating the file” against him.
