Municipality: Shepherd Hotel Project Approved Last Year

The Jerusalem Municipality slammed news reports that it had approved the Shepherd Hotel project on the day the Prime Minister met with U.S. President Obama.

"The report is distorted and is meant to stir up a provocation during Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's visit in Washington.The plan was approved in July 2009 by the local planning committee. Its approval was published in the media at the time. The landowners only paid the fees on March 15th, 2010 and approval was granted automatically after that."
