Residents of the Palestinian village of Bil`in have petitioned the Italian court against Heftsiba CEO Boaz Yona, demanding that he stand trial for allegedly building illegally on their land, Army Radio reported on Tuesday. On January 4, 2006, the Peace Now movement and residents of Bil'in, a neighboring Palestinian village, petitioned the High Court of Justice, charging that the apartments under construction by Heftsiba and another company, Green Park, were being built according to a zoning plan which had not been legally sanctioned. Two days later, the court issued an interim injunction instructing the respondents to immediately halt all construction, prevent home purchasers from moving in to finished apartments and desist from transferring ownership deeds to them. That injunction has been in effect ever since. Dan Izenberg contributed to this report.
