Lindenstrauss slams political parties over real estate

July 1, 2012 17:46

In a highly critical report published Sunday, state comptroller Micha Lindenstrauss revealed failures in the way several of the country's major political parties have managed their real estate assets.

The report criticized the Labor Party, Likud, the National Religious Party, Hadash and Meretz for several irregularities, including that they did not have agreements or other documents required to prove their rights to some of the assets to which they claimed ownership.

In another part  of the report, Labor and the Communist Party come under fire for owing millions of shekels in property taxes to local authorities.

The Communist Party forms a part of the Jewish-Arab socialist front Hadash, which has four MKs. It owes NIS 2.07 million in unpaid taxes, the report revealed, due to years' old debts.
