MK Shama: Jlem Storeowners Should Sue

Owners of businesses in downtown Jerusalem should sue the government, MK Carmel Shama suggested Wednesday. Shama visited storeowners in the area, who related the difficulties they have faced due to the construction of the light rail system in the city.

The light rail project is running several years behind schedule. Its construction led to some buses being diverted around the downtown area, and to severe traffic congestion due to road work.

“The city center is bleeding, financially speaking,” Shama said. “Now we have to figure out how to ease the storeowners' difficulties.”
