Former Jerusalem District Court Judge Yosef Shapira was sworn in as the new state comptroller on Wednesday. He replaces Micha Lindenstrauss, who steps down after seven years in the position.

Although Shapira’s term began Wednesday, Lindenstrauss will still be at work on a report on the Harpaz affair, thanks to a controversial law passed only two weeks ago that allows the outgoing state comptroller to file official reports within three months of the end of their term.

Another investigation begun under Lindenstrauss, that Shapira will be called upon to finish, is the probe of travel funding by private donors for Prime Minster Benjamin Netanyahu and other government officials.
