MKs slammed President Shimon Peres on Tuesday for commuting life sentences of high-security prisoners who killed IDF soldiers in the 1980s.

Kadima MK Otneil Schneller proposed that a new law be passed that would limit the president's ability to commute sentences.

"A president should not be able to shorten the sentences of citizens of Israel that are traitors to their state and murder IDF soldiers for nationalist reasons," Schneller said.
