Shama: Meeting on Ofer Bros. halted because of note

June 1, 2011 11:51

The note that stopped the Knesset Economics Committee Meeting on the Ofer Brothers Group sales to Iran remained a mystery on Wednesday, as committee chair MK Carmel Shama-Hacohen (Likud) would not divulge its contents.

“There are no new details since I got the note,” Shama-Hacohen said, reiterating that the note’s contents were the main motivation for halting the discussion.

The MK added that another consideration in the abrupt interruption of Tuesday’s meeting was the lack of representation by the Ofer Brothers Group.

“I knew the Ofer Brothers themselves wouldn’t attend the meeting, but I thought they’d send a lawyer or their director-general,” Shama-Hacohen explained. “There wasn’t anyone to ask questions about the core of the discussion.”
