The Knesset passed a law extending State Comptroller Micha Lindenstrauss’ tenure by three months on Tuesday, despite opposition from the Justice Ministry due to constitutional issues.

Lindenstrauss, whose term as comptroller officially ends on Sunday, will be permitted to finish his investigation of the Harpaz scandal, which involves an alleged forgery by a confidant of former IDF chief of staff Lt.-Gen. (ret.) Gabi Ashkenazi.

At the same time, Judge Joseph Shapira is expected to take his position as new State Comptroller on Sunday and work on all topics other than the Harpaz Affair. Shapira will decide which resources Lindenstrauss will be able to use to continue working on his report.
