Barkat welcomes ruling to temporarily halt IBC opening outside Jerusalem

Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat welcomed the decision Sunday by the High Court of Justice to issue an interim injunction against the yet-to-be launched Israel Broadcasting Corporation, demanding that the public broadcaster explain within 17 days why it will begin operations out of Modi’in instead of Jerusalem.

The Jerusalem Municipality’s petition against the IBC was heard last Thursday. An IBC representative told the court that no suitable premises had been found in Jerusalem that met the needs of the public broadcasting service which is due to replace the Israel Broadcasting Authority on October 1.
