The police are nearing the end of their investigation of the Holyland Affair and the state prosecution is due to decide in principle whether to indict any of the suspects within four months, the assistant to the attorney-general revealed on Wednesday.

The disclosure came in a letter to Ruth Yosef, chairperson of the Jerusalem District Council for Planning and Building. In the letter, attorney Sarit Dana told Ruth that the Justice Ministry would not prevent developers who have already started to build on the site from completing the construction.

However, she added that until the investigation was completed, she was asking attorney Yossi Habilio, the Jerusalem municipal legal adviser, to inform the State Attorney's Office of any new requests for a building permit on the vacant sites.
