MK Ariel: Weinstein Decision Harms Audit Institutions


MK Uri Ariel (National Union) said on Sunday that Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein’s decision to form an independent unit at the Justice Ministry which will deal with supervision over the work of the prosecution and representation of the state in the court system, seriously damages the State’s auditing institutions.

“The Attorney General’s decision that the body will be subject to him and that no individual complaints will be accepted does serious harm to the audit institution,” Ariel said. “This should be clarified with the Knesset State Audit Committee, headed by Roni Bar-On, and I intend to demand that the auditing body will have full independence, full transparency and full access to every citizen ".
