Weinstein Bypasses Ministers, Supervises JNF

On Sunday, a proposal by Justice Minister Tzipi Livni to place the Jewish National Fund under the supervision of the State Comptroller's Office was defeated in the Ministerial Law Committee, with a majority of government ministers voting against the bill.

But on Monday, Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein effectively reversed that decision, declaring that he was ordering the JNF to be placed under the supervision of his own office.
