MK proposes administrative detention for soccer hooligans

Knesset Education, Culture and Sports Committee chairman Alex Miller (Israel Beiteinu) has proposed a bill that would allow police to put rowdy sports fans in administrative detention.
Miller's initiative comes ahead of his committee's meeting on Monday, to discuss violence at soccer games. Public Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch and Israel Football Association chairman Avi Luzon plan to participate in the discussion.
"In order to prevent a national tragedy like there was in Egypt [last month], and because violence is on the rise on Israeli soccer fields, we must take very extreme steps against hooligans," Miller explained.
