Amana investigated for illegal construction in West Bank

Judea and Samaria district police investigate settler movement for illegal construction of outposts following request by Peace Now

The Amana movement, headed by Ze’ev Haver, has been under investigation by the Judea and Samaria district police under suspicion of illegal construction of outposts.


In November 2005, the Peace Now movement sent a letter to Attorney General Menachem Mazuz, asking him to investigate the actions of Amana regarding the continued building and marketing of homes in illegal outposts throughout the West Bank.


The letter claimed that Amana’s website was advertising a lot of information indicating intensive activity in illegal outposts.


According to a report by Attorney Talia Sason, Amana continues to market permanent homes and temporary dwellings to a large number of illegal outposts.


Peace Now only recently received a response to its letter. The response was signed by Deputy State Prosecutor Shai Nitzan, and said, “I would like to inform you that on 19 February, 2006, a criminal investigation was launched regarding the involvement of the Amana movement in illegal construction in the Judea and Samaria area.”
