Due to criminal activity: Court closes Winter Stadium | Israel Hayom


Highlights: The Tel Aviv District Court has rejected the request of the owners of the Winter Stadium to grant them a license to use the stadium. The decision was made because the previous owner of the stadium, Gal Yosef, is still involved in criminal activity at the site. The previous owner, Nimrod Vered, is accused of using the stadium for his own personal gain. The court also rejected a request by the owners to grant a license for the use of the building's facilities, which would have required a license from the city of Tel Aviv.

Despite the petition of the Amidar Ramat Gan power group, the Administrative Court accepted the prosecutor's position and closed the legendary stadium • The reason: The team's previous owner, Gal Yosef, is part of the site and conducts criminal activity there that endangers public safety and security

The Tel Aviv District Court today (Wednesday) rejected the petition of Hakoah Amidar Ramat Gan and approved the closure of the Winter Stadium in the city.

The Administrative Court accepted the position of the State Prosecutor's Office and rejected the petition of the team and its owner, Nimrod Vered, to cancel the decision of the police and the Ramat Gan Municipality not to grant a business license to Winter Stadium. This is because the group's previous owner, Gal Yosef, is still part of the site and conducts criminal activity there that endangers public safety and security.

According to the petitioners, after the team collapsed financially and a request was filed to dissolve the Public Benefit Company, a group of investors, headed by Nimrod Vered, formed to save the football club with its glorious history. The group of investors, which became the owners of the football club in question, began a recovery program in which he applied for a business license to operate the Winter Stadium in Ramat Gan. This request was refused by the police and the municipality.

Justice Amit Kobi Vardi noted that "at the end of the day, the heart of the matter is the connection of the petitioners and the business to Mr. Yosef and to Mr. Yosef's alleged criminal activity, all based on the confidential intelligence material according to which anything will rise or fall, and in this case this information indicates that Mr. Yosef is still involved in the business, maintains contact, which is not only friendly, with Mr. Vered and exploits the stadium and the assets within it for criminal activity, and therefore there is no reason to interfere with the reasonable police decision under the circumstances To refuse to grant a license to the business."

Subsequently, the judge referred to the fact that the team and its owners use the stadium's facilities for training even without the required permit, endangering the trainees and for financial gain.

"Beyond all the above, it is also impossible to ignore the self-judgment allegedly done by the petitioners by conducting training at the facility, even though they know that according to the municipality, which is the one that grants the business license, (as well as according to the police), training in the facility also requires a business license and no activity can be carried out in the stadium."
