Alexander Metochion in Jerusalem working as usual, has no info on property handover - society's rep

BERLIN.Feb 5 (Interfax) - The historical Imperial Orthodox Palestine Society (Munich), which runs the Alexander Metochion in Jerusalem, is working as usual and has no news about a transfer of the property, the society's director Nikolai Worontsow-Hoffmann told Interfax.

"There is still no news. The press is writing, but we have no news. Our lawyers are working," Worontsow-Hoffmann said.

He said earlier that his organization was planning to challenge the Israeli authorities' decision to hand over the property.
