The Finance Minister's Office late Sunday released a statement saying that he "vehemently denies all of the media reports" about a secret agreement to transfer NIS 110 million for the controversial yeshiva student stipends.

The Finance Ministry said that "no agreement was signed with Shas or any other political authority on this subject." The statement continued, decrying "another pathetic instance of Knesset sources trying to make headlines and incite an entire population against the government."
