Kadima will oppose libel law amendment, except Sheetrit

Kadima will oppose the a proposed amendment to the libel law that would raise the court-imposed penalty for publishing libelous material - without proof of loss.
The party said Monday it would oppose the amendment after voting to do so. Kadima will, however, allow MK Meir Sheetrit to vote for the amendment because he proposed it. Most of the opposition opposes the change to the law.
There will be coalition discipline in the vote set to take place Monday night, but MKs from Habayit Hayehudi and most likely from Independence will abstain.
