There is no suspicion of foul play on the part of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu in the case of funding trips abroad, according to State Comptroller Micha Lindenstrauss' findings, Israel Radio reported Monday.

Court officials told Israel Radio that the auditor transferred his findings to Attorney-General Yehuda Weinstein, under Section 14 C, which requires the auditor to bring to the attorney-general's attention suspicion of a criminal act.

According to reports from April 2011, Netanyahu billed different organizations for the same flights abroad, that became notoriously known as Bibi-Tours.

The attorney-general delayed his decision on the matter, and was expected to decide that it was not fitting to open an investigation into the affair, Israel Radio reported.
