MK: Immigration Minister must stop sale of Mevasseret absorption center

June 3, 2015 22:26

Immigration and Absorption Minister Ze'ev Elkin should join the fight against selling the Absorption Center in Mevasseret Zion, MK Yoel Razbozov (Yesh Atid) said Wednesday.

Razbozov asked Elkin in the plenum: "On May 31, 2015, the tender that the Management Company for the Pension Fund of the Jewish Agency published for selling the land of the absorption center to the highest bidder closed. How was land transferred from the state - The Jewish Agency - to a private body - the management company - in the first place if the Israel Land Authority does not have a document relating to a request to transfer the land?" he asked.

The Yesh Atid MK also asked Elkin to join him in investigating how the land was transferred under the nose of the Immigration and Absorption Ministry, which controls half of it.

Elkin answered in the negative, adding that the previous ministers were responsible.
