The Commissioner of Public Complaints on the Prosecution, retired Judge David Rosen, published this morning (Tuesday) a response to a complaint against the Deputy Ombudsman for Economic Enforcement, Adv. Liat Ben-Ari, regarding construction offenses that occurred at her home in Rosh HaAyin. His remarks were made in the background of the backing he received from Attorney General Dr. Avichai Mandelblit, who even provided her with legal assistance, which casts a heavy shadow over the purity of his and senior prosecutors, according to the complaint.
In his decision, the commissioner states that he chose not to intervene since the matter is within the scope of the local committee for construction in Rosh HaAyin, but warned that a public servant must take extra care of the procedures and laws. “The whole issue as a whole is in the hands of the local committee and law enforcement agencies, and I will not discuss these, and certainly not interfere in matters,” he wrote in his decision. The Commissioner added that he did not find that there was any truth in the allegation of improper use of the spokespersons of the Ministry of Justice and that the Commission is not the appropriate body to handle these cases, as they were not done within its role.
However, retired Judge Rosen noted: “It is impossible not to say out loud and clear that a public servant, certainly a public servant who holds a senior position, is commanded to be careful and careful in his conduct as lightly as severely, not only in his public office. “And the manner in which the law is enforced by him, and all and rightly so, without assumptions and forgiveness. In other words, a flame in cedars, if it is a small flame and even a spark, may ignite and clarify others, who see with their eyes and do as they do.”
“I did not find any support regarding the granting of immunity”
The commissioner further stated: “I have not found any support regarding the granting of immunity, so to speak, by the State Attorney’s Office to Adv. Ben Ari … It emerged from the Attorney General’s reference that he trusts the competent authorities to deal with these allegations.”
Adv. Ben-Ari responded to the complaint and stated that the complaint should be rejected outright, due to the number of grounds set forth in the Commission Law.
In addition, Adv. Ben-Ari claimed that the complaints were part of an organization to harm her because she was the chief prosecutor in Netanyahu’s cases.
To the substance of the allegations, Adv. Ben-Ari noted that the handling of the purchase, construction and rental of the house was done entirely by her partner Aviv Shviki, as well as the occupation of the property throughout.
As for the construction offenses themselves, Adv. Ben-Ari argued that the construction irregularities committed in the house are at the lowest threshold, and the policy of the local committee in Rosh HaAyin, which was even officially published, supports splits as is done in the property and routinely approves such requests.
Suspicion: Ben-Ari construction offenses at her home in Moshav Herut
Inspector Ziv Miller audited on February 24 this year and found that work had been carried out on the property to open an opening from the house yard and another opening from the outside directly to the basement of the house. In fact, it is a matter of splitting the property – turning an apartment into two apartments. These are works done without a permit.
