Report: New Findings in Bibi Tours Probe

State Comptroller Micha Lindenstrauss has submitted two findings to Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein regarding allegations that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu accepted funding from private sources for trips for him and his family while in public office, according to a Monday report by the Ma'ariv daily. The allegations were originally raised by Channel 10 television's Raviv Drucker.

According to the Ma'ariv report, the Prime Minister's Office applied pressure on the Comptroller's Office to change the lead investigator on the case, but was turned down.
