Knesset legal adviser Eyal Yinon on Thursday ruled that the State Control Commitee decision to expand State Comptroller Micha Lindenstrauss' authority was legal but will not be valid until it is voted on again in the next discussion of the subject.

Drama erupted late Wednesday night in the Knesset when Knesset Speaker Reuven Rivlin accused State Control Commitee chairman Yoel Hasson of backhanded dealings, after Hasson’s committee approved a last-minute request to give Lindenstrauss exceptional authorities in probing the “Bibi-Tours” scandal.
