The committee received authority to investigate the way the police conducted the investigation which began following the murder of known underworld figure Pinhas Buhbot in 1999 and until the murder of former cop turned criminal Tzahi Ben Or in 2004. The committee, expected to finish the work by end of June 2006, will also investigate the way the prosecution dealt with the case.
