Gal-On to Comptroller: "R" Must be Protected

MK Zahava Gal-on (Meretz) called on the State Comptroller to use his authority to issue an order of protection for "R.", a woman who is alleging that she was improperly approached by members of the Prime Minister's Office. R. has refused to testify in the case, and on Sunday the Attorney General's office said it would not pursue a criminal case in the matter.

Gal-on, in a letter to the Comptroller's Office, wrote that it appeared that R. was afraid to testify under current conditions, and that everything must be done to ensure that she feels safe enough to testify.
