Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit plans to push through Moshe “Chico” Edri's appointment as police commissioner, according to Maariv.
The Goldberg Committee which approves appointments of high-ranking officials recommended that Edri not be appointed.
The Goldberg Committee disqualified Edri due to a meeting he held with an attorney representing one of the people who filed a complaint to the committee against his appointment. The meeting took place just days before Edri was scheduled to meet with the committee. It also cited a state comptroller’s report about Edri cancelling six speeding tickets of a border police commander.
