Rivlin bans lobbyists from most of the Knesset

Knesset Speaker Reuven Rivlin announced limitations on lobbyists' activities in the Knesset on Thursday that go beyond those he had previously announced.
Employees of Gilad Lobbying may no longer have permanent entry passes to the Knesset, and Rivlin plans to examine whether their lobbyist licenses can be rescinded.The move comes following a report broadcast by Channel 2 investigative program Uvda pm Tuesday night, which used hidden cameras to expose Gilad lobbyists bragging about manipulating MKs and the Knesset Center for Research and Information in order to increase their clients' revenues. The MKs interviewed by Uvda denied being influenced by lobbyists.
