The Knesset presidential committee, consisting of Knesset Speaker Dalia Itzik, her deputies and a number of other key officials, decided on Tuesday not to open up the issue of letters issued by the Zeiler commission for discussion on the Knesset floor. The issue surrounding the letters, which were sent to key police and other officials regarding possible involvement with underworld kingpins, the Perinian brothers, was rejected due to its lack of immediacy and closure. Member of the presidential committee and former deputy police commissioner MK Yitzhak Aharonovitch (Israel Beiteinu) was among the recipients of the warning letter. All decisions made by the Knesset presidential committee regarding issues being considered for discussion on the Knesset floor may be appealed.
