Attorney-General Menahem Mazuz has officially rejected claims by Accountant-General Yaron Zelekha regarding the transfer of excessive funds to local authorities controlled by Kadima, Army Radio reported on Monday. "In light of the nature of the explanations given by the Interior Ministry, I have not found room to continue our investigation on the matter," Mazuz wrote. Officials present at a meeting in Mazuz's office on Sunday night speculated that Mazuz would not order an investigation into the matter, nor would he publicly criticize then-interior minister Ronnie Bar-On.
