In a press release bashing the state comptroller's recent report on illegal construction in east Jerusalem, Ir Amim - an organization whose slogan is "For an equitable and stable Jerusalem with an agreed political future - sent a letter of protest to the comptroller on Sunday.

The letter said, "it is clear that a private organization is involved in setting the agenda of the Comptroller in a matter of great significance." It goes on to say that Ir Amim learned "from reading the protocols of the Knesset's State Control Committee" that the organization is "'Betzedek,' a known right wing organization."

The letter slammed the comptroller for apparently allowing a political organization to influence the "agenda of an important Knesset committee," and the office of the state comptroller, as well as seeking to hide that influence.
