Police are not fighting organized crime sufficiently and they usually don't seize the criminals' assets, a state comptroller report obtained by Army Radio on Monday found. According to the report, current police teams tasked with battling organized crime are not professional enough and the cooperation between them and the Tax Authority is institutionally flawed. A source close to the state comptroller's investigation said that the report was one of the harshest so far against the Israel Police.
