Otzma Yehudit chief Itamar Ben Gvir, who is slated to become the next national security minister, is seeking to intervene in the Israel Police before he has even been sworn in to office.

After a reported fight yesterday with Israel Police chief Kobi Shabtai, Ben Gvir sends a letter to Attorney General Gali Barhav-Miara asking her to stop Shabtai from advancing senior appointments before Ben Gvir takes over.

In the letter, Ben Gvir complains about “problematic conduct” in the outgoing Public Security Ministry, which he claims is attempting to hand him a “fait accompli” once he takes office.
