Ariel: 'Bibi-tours' Draft Could Wait until After Vote


Chairman Uri Ariel of the Knesset State Control Committee criticized, Friday morning, Thursday's release of a draft report by the state comptroller to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and other ministers cited in the document, which relates to travel abroad which is funded by private parties.

Interviewed by Israel Defense Forces Radio, Ariel said the move could have waited until after next month's scheduled Knesset election. He continued, "They could have waited another month. What would have happened?"
