May 26, 2010 16:30

Supreme Court President Dorit Beinisch criticized the continued paving of a road to the West Bank settlement of Eli, despite an intermediate ruling by the High Court to suspend construction, Army Radio reported Wednesday.

In a session discussing an appeal against the road by Human Rights group Yesh Din, Beinisch stated that such a project cannot take place on private land, and that it was "a serious matter" that work continues despite the court order.
