Labor MK Ophir Paz-Pines called upon the Knesset Law Committee on Tuesday to investigate the circumstances behind Micheal Mor's punishment. Mor was sentenced to 11 months in jail for threatening judges and police officers.
However, Mor is set to be released in three months, since he has been in jail since February last year.
"In light of the shocking charges against Mor, the plea bargain reached with him is no longer reasonable," Paz-Pines said. "Plea bargains have become too commonplace in the Israeli legal system and something must be done about it."
"The public is sick of violent organized crime, and I don't think the courts have internalized that," he added.
