A senior Finance Ministry official dismissed on Monday Accountant-General Yaron Zelekha's claim that his life was being threatened, saying that "no one is threatening Zelekha" and that the accountant-general had simply gone crazy, Army Radio reported.
However, the chairman of the Movement for Quality Government, attorney Eliad Shraga, said Monday morning that the government system was rotten inside.
"This is another step in the insanity of the State of Israel," he said. "The fact that the system, including Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and Attorney-General Menahem Mazuz, is not standing up to support Yaron Zelekha has made him fair game. Zelekha's blood is on their hands."
