Lindenstrauss investigating Interior Ministry improprieties

State Comptroller Micha Lindentrauss is investigating allegations that a bureaucrat who formerly worked in the Interior Ministry improperly provided migrant workers with permits authorizing them to legally work in Israel, Channel 10 reported on Thursday.
The Interior Ministry employee in question was later fired from her job.
The office of Interior Minister Eli Yishai claimed that the reasons for the termination of the woman's employment at the ministry were not connected to the events under investigation.
