Police says it can’t ‘determine exact cost’ of security for “anti-Zionist” rabbi visit

Israel Police says it does not know how much it spent in securing the visit of the “anti-Zionist” Satmar Rabbi Zalman Teitelbaum last December.

This was the response given by police to a query from the Shakuf transparency group that asked authorities to reveal the costs of the police convoy that accompanied Teitelbaum throughout the ten-day trip.

“After having taken reasonable measures, it became clear that it would not be possible for us to determine the exact cost of securing the convoy and the cost of the events in which the Satmar rabbi participated,” police say in their response the query, rejecting the FOI request.
