No Criminal Charges for Park Accused of Discrimination


Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein ruled on Sunday that a criminal investigation for discrimination will not be opened against the Superland amusement park. He decided there was no room to take legal steps against Superland in light of park management's public apology and declaration of its intention to immediately cease any policies deemed discriminatory. The Attorney General noted that the police and the prosecution requested a working plan to raise awareness about discrimination.

It was recently revealed that Superland had a practice of having Jewish schools and Arab schools visit on separate days. Managers argued that the practice was necessary to avoid violence and said that both Jewish and Arab teachers had asked for the separate days.
