Have you broken the law?

The Corporations Authority will examine whether the left-wing Ir Amim organization has properly reported on donations it has received from foreign governments.

About a week ago, we published in "Israel Today" that according to activists who deal with the issue, "Ir Amim" hides from the law enforcement authorities the use it makes of funds that come to it from foreign governments in violation of the law.

Now, as mentioned, the Corporations Authority will examine the issue and check whether the organization does not report foreign donations. 

About NIS 100,000 from the Norwegian embassy for the association's activities.

City of Nations Report,

The Corporations Authority stated: "Ir Amim was registered on July 30, 2000, and at the moment, it holds a proper management permit for 2022. Its main approved goals: to promote the cause of Jerusalem and its cultivation, to work to create a relationship between the sectors of the city based on honor. Mutual, and work to create governmental systems anchored in the existence of two national collectives in the city - Jewish and Palestinian.

"The information brought to our attention in the application has been submitted for examination by the relevant parties in our unit, and will be examined in accordance with the policy of handling inquiries in the matter of non-profit associations and companies, published on the Registrar's website."

Ran Yishai, a senior diplomat and a member of the Israeli delegation to the former European Union, filed a complaint with the police against the organization "Ir Amim", because he said it was a false report and a violation of the law.

Unlike other left-wing organizations, which maintain transparency as required, the complaint states, in "Ir Amim" they maintain a disturbing ambiguity when it comes to the use of funds, and are satisfied with the line of donation in the words "association activity", instead of detailing what activity it is.

These are millions of shekels that come from a number of countries and organizations, including the European Union, Norway, Sweden and more.
