Avi Roeh, the head of the Binyamin Regional Council, has told employees that police are likely to open an investigation against him in the near future, regarding a sewage treatment plant built in the town of Ofra, north of Jerusalem.
Roeh is accused of violating a Civil Administration stop-work order in order to complete the plant despite a complaint by a far-left group that it was built on private Arab land.
In an interview with Arutz Sheva, Roeh admitted to the accusations against him, but argued that his decision had been the moral thing to do. There are people living here, and real life that has to continue. We cant have every single thing cause delays, so that normal life is not authorized, he said.
He slammed those who had issued the stop-work order, saying, Nobody cares about sewage contaminating the aquifer in the Ofra area, whats important to them is whether they gave the proper authorizations.
Roeh dismissed the claims that the installation was built on privately owned land as a caprice of the Left.
