Zandberg kicks official out of Knesset committee meeting for mocking her

Knesset Committee on Drug and Alcohol Abuse chairwoman Tamar Zandberg (Meretz) removed an Anti-Drug Authority official from a meeting Sunday for mocking her and questioning her ability to lead the panel.

The incident took place at a meeting to discuss the government’s decision, which appears in the 2015-2016 budget, to move the ADA’s activities under the Public Security Ministry’s authority.

The ADA Public Council chairman Zvi Hendel, a former National Union MK, said the Finance Ministry made the decision without the approval of the relevant ministries.
