An administrative petition was recently filed in the Tel Aviv District Court, sitting as an administrative court, with allegations against Herzliya Mayor Moshe Fadlon, as well as against the Herzliya municipality, for discrimination in favor of associates in operating a restaurant on Herzliya Beach. The petitioner, Amphi Ltd., has been operating two restaurant complexes on the shores of Herzliya for the past five years, which are located near another business operated by the petitioner, according to close associates of the mayor. No tender, no permit or operating agreement, no business license and no lawful building permit. To the mayor, the course of the petitioner’s business in the two restaurants she operates on the beach was damaged.
In addition, Amphi Ltd. emphasizes in its petition that it pays about NIS 2.4 million a year for the right to operate a restaurant on the beach, and that it meets all the regulatory requirements, while the same person close to Fadlon operates a business identical to that of the petitioner, without any appropriate approval. Thus robbing the petitioner’s customers and harming her livelihood.
The petition further claims that although Ampi has appealed to the authorities several times for enforcement, they refrain from exercising the supervisory and enforcement powers available to them, and that this reinforces its concern that foreign considerations underlie the decision not to enforce the business, and the decision to enforce the law against the petitioner. Selectively. The petition claims that “this paints a serious picture of governmental conduct characterized by foreign and improper considerations, which justify court intervention.”
Herzliya Municipality’s response: “Since this is a matter that is pending in court, the Herzliya Municipality is prevented from responding.”
