The Finance Committee rejected for the fifth consecutive time Tuesday a request by the Defense Ministry to turn over the funding necessary for inspectors to enforce the West Bank building moratorium.
In accordance with a request from the Finance Committee during the previous session to discuss the funding, Maj.-Gen. Eitan Dangot attended the meeting to personally explain to the committee the need for the additional funds.
Dangot, the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT), told the committee that he felt that the word "inspectors" was unfair, and did injustice to the civil servants who worked in the difficult position of enforcing civil authority in the West Bank.
