The “Green Police” at the Environmental Protection Ministry has opened a public
investigation against the Ramot Shapira Educational Institution and its
administrators for allegedly dumping sewage into the public domain, the ministry
announced on Tuesday.
Through an initially undercover investigation that
the office has been conducting since May, the Environment Ministry reported that
it has gathered evidence the organization and its employees have been pumping
sewage from the institution’s pits into the local area. Ramot Shapira is located
in Moshav Beit Meir just outside of Jerusalem, and next to the Masrek Nature
After receiving a court order, a team of Green Police inspectors
searched the grounds and confiscated accounting materials and other documents
that strengthened suspicions against the institution, according to a ministry
Thus far, the Green Police has investigated several officials
from the organization, and the ministry said it intends to issue an indictment
Attempts by The Jerusalem Post
to obtain comments about the
allegations from the institution were unsuccessful.
