Comptroller fines Likud over party retreat, says it’s a ‘forbidden donation’

State Comptroller Matanyahu Englman has fined the Likud party NIS 100,000 ($30,402) for failing to include the “Likudiada” annual conference in Eilat in its list of donations.

The retreat for Likud party activists constitutes a “forbidden donation,” he writes.

He also warns Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu not to use the Prime Minister’s Residence for large political gatherings.

Englman also fines a handful of lawmakers for exceeding the funds allocated to them for party primaries and other offenses. These include Likud MKs Ayoub Kara, Nir Barkat, Osnat Mark and Fateen Mulla and Labor’s Saleh Sa’ad.
