The Knesset Ethics Committee on Tuesday condemned Ra'am-Ta'al MK Ahmed Tibi's decision to travel to Libya along with other MKs.

Tibi did not request the committee's approval despite the fact that it had been brought to his attention that he had traveled abroad twice in the past without receiving confirmation.

The committee decided not to take action against the other MKs who traveled to Libya, including Jamal Zahalaka and Haneen Zoabi (Balad,) Muhammad Barakei and Afo Agbaria (Hadash,) and Taleb A-Sanaa (Ra'am-Ta'al.)

The reason behind this decision is because this was the first time that these MKs traveled abroad with approval.
