Mr Eoghan Murphy TD, Minister for Housing, Planning & Local Government, today (19 December 2017) published his Department’s November Homelessness Report. The report, based on data provided by housing authorities, captures details of individuals utilising State-funded emergency accommodation arrangements that are overseen by housing authorities.

“Looking at the number of successful exits so far this year, we can give people hope that solutions will be found. In 2016 housing authorities assisted over 3,000 adults exit homeless services into independent tenancies. While this represented record output at the time, based on figure collected from housing authorities to date for 2017, I expect that 4,000 exits will be achieved nationally this year. That’s secure, stable and supported tenancies that have been created for 4,000 adults who were either in emergency accommodation or immediate risk of homelessness.”

The Minister acknowledged the excellent work being carried out by Dublin City Council to ensure the delivery of over 200 additional bed-spaces for homeless individuals and couples this winter.

A Likud minister reportedly brought along a number of personal associates and real estate brokers on an official trip to Ethiopia in April without government authorization. According to an Army Radio report Sunday, Communications Minister Ayoub Kara, who at the time was a minister-without-portfolio, never received official permission to invite his business associates and prominent party activists on the trip.

The radio report named those associates as real estate brokers Asher Biton and Hillel Levi; Likud Central Committee member Avi Korkus; Moshe Indig, a Likud activist from Jerusalem; and Dovie Maisel, the vice president of the United Hatzalah rescue organization.

Upon arriving in Ethiopia, the group was also joined by Ze’ev Schiff, who the report said has business interests in the country. He is also the husband of Kara’s bureau chief, Shirley Schiff.
