State comptroller opens Galant Document investigation

State Comptroller Micha Lindenstrauss announced on Tuesday that he would open an official investigation into the Galant Document affair.
Tuesday's announcement came after Defense Minister Ehud Barak requested that Lindenstrauss investigate the suspicious circumstances regarding the use of forged documents in the competition to replace Lt.-Gen. Gabi Ashkenazi as the next IDF chief of staff, which led to the eventual appointment of Maj.-Gen. Yoav Galant.
