Israeli politicians could face swearing fine

    Israeli politicians could soon face a fine for using bad language.

    The Knesset Ethics committee is set to consider a proposal to punish members who swear or speak insultingly to their colleagues by charging them up to 34,000 shekels (£5,700).

    The amount is equal to an entire month’s salary.

    At present Knesset members can only be fined for prolonged lapses in attendance or for taking on outside work.

    The committee will meet later this month to decide whether to approve the new set of behavioural recommendations.
