IDF Chief of Staff-designate Yoav Galant denied the findings of the state comptroller about improprieties in his land dealings, telling associates "I didn't lie and I don't intend on resigning."

Galant acknowledged that mistakes were made in the land dealings in Moshav Amikam that State Comptroller Micha Lindenstrauss investigated.

"There were two errors found in the thousands of documents that were checked. I didn't get anything out of the affidavits and the letters," Channel Ten quoted Galant as saying. He added that he intends to send further information to Attorney-General Yehuda Weinstein on Sunday to help clarify the issue.

Galant said that he was "convinced that there is nothing that can block the appointment to chief of General Staff."
