Responding to state comptroller's report on the handling of the Haim Ramon case, the Israel Police said on Monday that the state comptroller has acknowledged how police have worked to regulate electronic eavesdropping in criminal investigations to the state's satisfaction.

Police also stressed the comptroller's conclusion that the personal failures of police officials were at fault for the shortcomings in handling of the Ramon wiretap evidence, and not organizational problems in the use of wiretapping.

"It would appropriate to note that the main comments focus on the passing on of case material to the defense, and not on the eavesdropping," police said.
