MK Cites Environmental Concerns in Holyland Scandal


Member of Knesset Dov Henin (Hadash), chairman of the environmental lobby, cited the environmental concerns regarding the Holyland apartment scandal. Now that bribery in the construction and zoning of the sprawling Jerusalem luxury apartment complex has been confirmed by Monday's convictions, MK Henin stated that environmental concerns should not be forgotten.

"It all started from a small group of environmental activists determined to protest against the monstrous construction program which was already in its early stages," he stated.
