MK Shai: Galant appointment distracts from police probe

Kadima MK Nahman Shai had strong words for Defense Minister Ehud Barak on Sunday, criticizing him and others for rushing to appoint a new IDF chief of staff to distract attention from the police investigation of the Galant document.
"It is important to remind everyone, including the defense minister, that the police investigation into this matter [finding Ashkenazi's replacement] has not finished and we need to wait for its conclusion. The defense minister has hurried [to appoint a replacement] without reason. In any event, there is no possible way to ignore or pass over the the events that occurred during the process of selecting a new [IDF] chief of staff," said the MK.
