Attorney-General Yehuda Weinstein on Monday recommended Jerusalem District Court President Hila Gristol to be the first inspector of the state's prosecutorial apparatus.

Weinstein headed a committee which made a recommendation to Justice Minister Tzipi Livni for the head of a new powerful oversight body which has been debated and fought over for years, only recently achieving consensus.

Those in favor of the new oversight department, which Gristol is expected to head, say that the prosecution does not crack down or correct its own errors and needs an outside body to do so

Those who opposed the new oversight body, expressed concerns that it would be used by politicians too intimidate the prosecution from pursuing public corruption cases.
