Violation of Schalit swap conditional pardons leads to re-sentencing

The Jerusalem Post has this exclusive report on IDF proceedings to re-sentence those who were released in the 2011 Sgt. Gilad Schalit prisoner exchange but thereafter violated the terms of their conditional pardons. The article reports:
[Defense counsel Merav] Hori contended [among other things] that since a negative court decision would send the releasees back to jail for extended terms, the standard of evidence for the proceedings should be similar to in criminal cases, even though the case is an administrative proceeding about whether they honored the terms of their pardons.
