Attorney-General Yehuda Weinstein reportedly accused State Comptroller Micha Lindenstrauss of misleading the public with his recent statements about the "Harpaz document controversy," in an unprecedented head on clash between two of the leading law enforcement officials in the country, according to Channel Two news on Thursday.

Lindenstrauss has recently made public statements suggesting that Weinstein consider criminal charges in the affair despite an initial decision not to.

In a letter to Lindenstrauss, Weinstein lashed out, stating that no allegations that could be considered criminal had been raised against any of the main players in the controversy.

No criminal allegations were raised in the contacts between his and Lindenstrauss' office, "not explicitly, not as a hint, not in writing and not verbally," said Weinstein's letter, according to the report.
