State Comptroller Micha Lindenstrauss submitted a six-chapter report to the Knesset on Monday, highlighting a number of failures in various government bodies.

Although Lindenstrauss usually produces a single annual report in May, his office said that the State Comptroller published a second report this year because of an increase in his office's work.

The report identified and analyzed a wide range of government activities and provided comprehensive critiques of their failures, as well as detailed recommendations on steps that should be taken to rectify them.

Topics covered in the report include procedures carried out by the police and the state attorney's office to close criminal investigation files deemed not to be in the public interest; the internal workings of the Israel Bar Association; the Ministry of Environmental Protection's handling of stream rehabilitation; inter-ministerial special committees; competition in the
fuels market;and a monitoring report into the state of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai's tomb at Mount Meron.
