A petition filed by the Mossawa Center for Arabs citizens’ rights, in collaboration with the National Committee for the Heads of Arab Local Authorities asks the High Court of justice to direct the Ministry of Culture and Sports to allocate equal budgets to the Arab sector. The petitioners claim that the Ministry of Culture and Sports ignores recommendations issued by State Comptroller’s Office, which reported in 2008 that Arab-Israeli cultural institutions are under-budgeted.
