Finance Minister Ronnie Bar-On called on State Comptroller Micha Lindenstrauss to limit the injunction protecting Finance Ministry Accountant-General Yaron Zelekha from being removed from office, Army Radio reported Sunday. Bar-On sent Lindenstrauss a letter requesting to limit the injunction's period of validity, in view of the tension felt at the ministry. In the current situation, the comptroller's injunction was not limited and also prevented the government from appointing a permanent replacement for Zelekha. Ministry officials were still not considering turning to the High Court of Justice on the matter, as the comptroller's decision was defined as "temporary."
