The Ministerial Committee for Legislation is expected to decide Sunday whether to support a bill compelling the courts to confiscate the profits of pimps convicted of running brothels.

The money is to be used for rehabilitating prostitutes and human trafficking victims.
The bill was sponsored by MK Mickey Levy (Yesh Atid), a former police commander.
“Pimps and brothel managers should get tougher penalties and the money they made by exploiting and oppressing women should be used to help those women,” Levy said.
