The Israeli government is likely to take action to restore Holocaust victims' assets to their rightful heirs for the first time, through a new bill approved by the Knesset's Constitution, Law and Justice Committee on Monday. The bill will be up for a final vote on Wednesday, where it is expected to pass due to the support of Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, Finance Minister Ehud Olmert, and Knesset Speaker Reuven Rivlin. MK Colette Avital (Labor) proposed the bill, which would create a government owned company to locate the assets of holocaust victims and return them to their heirs.
