Treasury: Tischler C'tee Cannot Be Taken Seriously


The Finance Ministry attacked the findings of the Tischler Committee on the Defense Ministry budget, Sunday afternoon.

A Treasury statement said, "It's strange that the defense establishment sets up 'a secret committee' for the defense budget without the participation of representatives from the Ministry of Finance and the Prime Minister's Office. Because of this, you cannot take the commission seriously, given who appointed it ... and the conclusions were requested in advance."
