MK Nahman Shai (Kadima) slammed the Finance Ministry Wednesday for putting financial pressure on the Israel Broadcast Authority (IBA). Speaking in the Knesset Education Committee, Shai said that for over one year Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz has "prevented the approval of its yearly budget and enacting reforms in the IBA, thereby threatening its existence."

Pressure from the Treasury, Shai alleged, is being encouraged by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and "is intended to put pressure on the IBA" in order gain a grip on broadcasts and their influence.
