Israel’s police force and a former Bank of Israel governor came under harsh criticism in the state comptroller’s annual report on government activities. The report, released Monday, found evidence of excessive payments of some $57,000 that former Bank of Israel Governor Ya’acov Frenkel received in benefits from the bank. The report also found serious inadequacies in police functioning, stemming primarily from failure to follow proper procedure.
