Defense Minister Ehud Barak announced Saturday night that he intended to ask the State Comptroller Micha Lindenstrauss to launch an investigation into the circumstances surrounding the "Galant documents" which were allegedly forged.

Police last week recommended that Lt.-Col. (res.) Boaz Harpaz be charged with aggravated forgery.

The defense minister also planned to ask Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein to renew the Brick Committee, established by Barak, to conduct an "ethical and moral" investigation into the matter.
