Hadera Mayor Haim Avitan and Hadera municipality CEO Izi Enbar were interrogated by the police for four hours on Sunday over their alleged involvement in the expulsion of Sudanese refugees from the city. In August 2007, two agricultural companies and two Sudanese refugees petitioned the High Court of Justice to reprimand Avitan for allegedly using force and deceit to illegally expel 20 refugees who were picking fruit for the companies from an orchard within city limits.
