State Comptroller Yosef Shapira on Wednesday slammed the Finance, Industry, Trade and Labor and Agricultural ministries for failing to control skyrocketing food and dairy prices during the years 2005-2011.

"Social justice is not just an empty code word," said Shapira, declaring that the above ministries ignored social justice considerations in determining their regulatory policies.
