Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein ordered the police Sunday to open a limited investigation into the Galant scandal to determine whether the document, which purportedly details a PR campaign to secure Maj.-Gen Yoav Galant the IDF chief of staff position, was forged.

The investigation will be carried out by the International Investigations Unit of the police.

Weinstein said he had asked Defense Minister Ehud Barak not to appoint a new chief of staff until the limited investigation was finished.
