The Ombudsman for Public Complaints about the prosecution, retired Judge David Rosen, published this morning (Tuesday) a response to the complaint against the Deputy Ombudsman for Economic Enforcement, Adv. Liat Ben-Ari, regarding the construction offenses that took place at her home in Rosh HaAyin Provided her with legal assistance, which casts a heavy shadow over the purity of his morale and that of 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 is in the hands of the local committee and law enforcement bodies, and I will not discuss these, and certainly not interfere in matters,” he wrote in his decision, adding that he found no truth in the claim of improper use of Justice Department spokeswoman and that the Commission is not the appropriate body to handle these cases. Since they were made outside the scope of her role.
However, the Commissioner added that “it is impossible not to say out loud and clear that a public servant, certainly a public servant in a senior position, is commanded to be careful and careful in his conduct as lightly as severely, not only in his public office. The public’s eyes are on him and his conduct and manner.” “The law is by him, and all rightly so, without assumptions and forgiveness. In other words, a flame in cedars, if it is a small flame and even a spark, can ignite and clarify others, who see with their own eyes and do as they do.”
The commissioner further said that “I have not found any support regarding the alleged immunity from the State Attorney’s Office to Adv. Ben Ari … From the Attorney General’s reference, it emerged that he trusts the competent authorities to deal with these allegations.”
Ben-Ari responded to the complaint and stated that Shai rejected the complaint outright, due to a number of reasons set forth in the Commission Law, including that the complaint does not relate to her role as a lawyer, and a legal proceeding is taking place in her case.
In addition, Ben-Ari claimed that the complaints were part of an organization to harm her because she was the chief prosecutor in Netanyahu’s cases. As to the substance of the allegations, she noted that the handling of the purchase, construction and rental of the house was done entirely by her spouse, as well as the occupation of the property throughout.
As for the construction offenses themselves, the lawyer 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.
