Yechimovich to Legal Counsel: Double Check Tnuva Deal

MK Shelly Yechimovich (Labor) turned this morning (Thursday) to the government’s legal counsel with a request for a thorough and urgent examination of the sale of the Tnuva dairy company to a Chinese company.

The MK claims that “On March 29th, 2011, the Knesset approved of an amendment to law number three of the Israel Land Authority Law. I initiated the law in conjunction with MKs Nachman Shai, Yariv Levine and Uri Orbach. According to clause 2a that we added to the law, the Land Authority must give formal consent before any land rights can be transferred to a foreign citizen or to foreign control.”
