The head of the Israeli non-governmental organization “Regavim” Meir Date revealed one of the secrets of the high cost of housing in the country: it turns out that most contractors are forced to pay racketeering for the opportunity to work.

Date argues that levies on builders and product manufacturers have become nationwide and have a direct impact on the cost of the final product in virtually all of Israel.

According to Regavim statistics, 85% of contractors pay criminal gangs – Date told about this in an interview with Israeli Radio Channel 7.

Unlike films and CIS countries of the 90s of the last century, in Israel everything is very noble: they come to a person who has opened a business and leave a business card of a “security company”, and at the same time they say that the previous business was closed at this place, for example, as a result of arson, but the company that will take over the protection services will certainly not allow this.

– It comes to the point that the contractors themselves are interested – who should be paid here so that the work goes smoothly, – told Date.
