New overseer of Justice Ministry files her first report

Hila Gristol, the Justice Ministry’s first head of a department overseeing and critiquing 3,417 state prosecutors’ and advisory lawyers’ decisions, was set to publish early Monday her first report summarizing her efforts.

Gristol on Sunday sent the report to Attorney-General Yehuda Weinstein, who has some powers over her division and was involved in appointing her.

The new oversight czar described difficulties in evaluating the performance of prosecutors during her first year, as the prosecutors united against the oversight and went on strike against cooperating with her department.
