Navot Tel-Tsur, the lawyer who represented Defense Minister Ehud Barak before State Comtproller Micha Lindenstrauss, said on Wednesday that the comptroller's report clears Barak of any allegations that he received unauthorized funds from unknown sources during his term at the Defense Ministry.

Tel-Tsur told Israel Radio there was no hint of corruption or improper conduct in the investigation into Barak, and so there is no basis for the allegations.

According to Tel-Tsur, the transfer of Barak's consulting firm to his daughters was the appropriate step he took in the short time that was available to him before his appointment.
