Justice Minister Tzipi Livni on Sunday called to ease the process for victims of sexual assault to make claims for compensation.

Livni urged for immediate action to reduce the claims fees for compensation due to sexual attacks, and in turn decrease the psychological and legal difficulties faced by victims

"Decreasing the claims fee amount for sexual harassment relays a message of moral and social values, according to which the District Court opens the gate to victims seeking compensation for physical and psychological damage caused to them by sexual assault," Livni said.
