Comptroller tells A-G to open investigation into leak of ‘Bibi tours’ report

State Comptroller Joseph Shapira on Sunday called for Attorney-General Yehuda Weinstein to investigate the leaking of portions of his draft report on the so-called “Bibi tours” affair, which have been attributed by the media to Channel 10 reporter Raviv Drucker.

Shapira called the leaking of drafts of his report “an improper phenomenon and a violation of the law.”

In September, Weinstein closed his review of the “Bibi tours” scandal, determining there was little chance of it leading to an indictment, but the comptroller’s report had still not been published.

The affair involved Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s flights allegedly being funded by wealthy associates, from the late 1990s to early 2000s.

“At the end of the day, in light of the balance of the evidence collected, it could not be found that there was a basis to open a full criminal investigation” of the prime minister, the attorney- general previously said.
