In light of the Holyland real estate investigation, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu – in consultation with Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein – has asked Justice Minister Yaacov Neeman to carry out an additional check of the oversight mechanisms included in the planning and building reform bill.

"We have shortened the process and rendered it both more transparent and more open to public scrutiny," Netanyahu said. "However, I am still disturbed by the possibility that there might remain – at the local planning committees – pockets of practices that do not meet the criterion of integrity."
