Miki Zohar: "The light punishment hurts our chances of eradicating violence" | Israel today


The Minister of Culture and Sports on the court's decision to expel three fans, who threw flares for only three games: "a scourge that destroys the game experience and the viewing experience"

After the court decided to significantly lighten the punishment of three fans who threw flares and acted violently in the Teddy game yesterday, and to ban them for only three games, this evening (Monday) Minister of Culture and Sports Miki Zohar attacked the decision and said that "the light punishment harms our chances of eradicating the phenomenon of violence in sports."

"This has become a scourge and destroys the game experience and the viewing experience for sports fans. There is no other way but to take harsher and more severe punishments that will deter and keep away future rioters," added Minister of Culture and Sports Miki Zohar.

The court's decision was made while in the background the national program for the eradication of violence in sports is taking shape, on which Zohar and the professional teams work together with the police officers, with the centerpiece being the punishment of Niche against the rioters on the fields as part of a series of preventive measures and to ensure the safety and security of the fans and the players.
