ISRAEL – It is reported that ticket sales are delayed due to complications with the company which was suppose to build the grandstands.
The company Itzuv Bima cannot be definitely chosen because company was convicted of causing the death of Lt. Hila Bezaleli and injuries to seven other soldiers when a steel lighting rig collapsed during rehearsals for the torch-lighting ceremony on Mount Herzl in 2012.
The company has no building licence. In 2004, a design company asked for such a license, but there is no documentation that it has passed the required tests. KAN has not yet commented on the issue.
Company Gadi Vagan, which lost its tender bid, filed a petition last week with the Tel Aviv District Court against the broadcasting corporation and against Itzuv Bima. Th
e petition claims that the tender for the stands appears to have been tailored to the capacity of Itzuv Bima, reports Walla.
