Comptroller to Probe Agrexco Dismantling


State Comptroller Micha Lindenstrauss will examine the decision-making process surrounding the dismantling of the financially-troubled Agrexco agricultural export company.

The Finance Ministry is scheduled to decide, in the next few days, whether to proceed with the process. According to a proposal by Chairman Ronnie Bar-On of the Knesset State Control Committee, the alternative is for the ministry to operate the company ahead of privatizing it. The comptroller said there is no conflict between the legal proceedings and his probe.
