Israel Govt. to Study Report Charging Irregularities in Agency

Minister of Justice Dov Joseph last night told the parliament that the Israel Government has asked the Jewish Agency to make available to it a report by Dr. Emil Shmorak, World Zionist Organization comptroller, who charged at the last Zionist Congress that a number of irregularities existed in the Agency set-up.

Dr. Joseph said that the government was interested in investigating Dr. Shmorak’s report and, if necessary, indicting any one found guilty of illegal actions. Dr. Joseph’s statement was made during a debate on a draft bill providing punishment for bribery and corruption.
