Comptroller criticizes discrimination in Jerusalem

It takes too long to receive a permit to build in Jerusalem and not enough permits are granted, especially in the city’s Arab neighborhoods, State Comptroller Joseph Shapiro wrote in a report about local authorities that he published Tuesday.

Shapiro found that the decision-making process regarding building in Jerusalem was faulty and did not promote transparency or equality. He also criticized the drop in oversight over building violations in the city.
