Comptroller probes Regev alleged conflict of interest after NGO request

State Comptroller Joseph Shapira late Monday night initiated a probe of Culture and Sports Minister Miri Regev relating to an alleged conflict of interest when she gave an NIS 2.5 million contract for advertising to a marketer she was connected to without holding a public bidding process.

Shapira gave Regev seven days to respond to the allegations as to why she transferred substantial funds without a standard bidding process.

Earlier Monday, an NGO asked Attorney-General Yehuda Weinstein to probe Regev regarding the same allegations.
