The employees of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced Wednesday that they will appeal to State Comptroller Yosef Shapira demanding an investigation into the appointments committee in the ministry, Army Radio reported Wednesday.

Since the so-called Belarus Ambassador Affair in which former foreign minister Avigdor Liberman is embroiled, employees say that in the appointments committee there is abnormal and "unkosher" behavior.

According to the committee spokesman Shai Peles, "the make-up of the committee gives an automatic majority to the management," which he said runs contrary to the rules.

In addition he said there is no appropriate protocol for committee discussions, which makes it difficult to examine the considerations that led to certain appointments.
