Finance Ministry skirted rules in settler funding request, Knesset legal adviser says

The Finance Ministry failed to follow proper procedure by requesting funding for a settler visitor center without first obtaining legal clearance from the Attorney General’s Office, the Knesset legal adviser Eyal Yanon said on Wednesday.
He issued his statement in a letter to Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein. He asked that Weinstein instruct the government to follow proper rules and procedures by only requesting funds after all bureaucratic approvals were obtained.  
Yanon’s letter followed a stormy Knesset Finance Committee meeting on Sunday in which NIS 12.8 million was approved for a new visitor center in the Barkan Industrial Park, located in the West Bank.
