Gantz to Netanyahu: Publicize transcripts of government’s pandemic discussions

Defense Minister Benny Gantz urges Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to publicize the transcripts of the government’s deliberations on the pandemic in both the cabinet and so-called coronavirus cabinet.

The minutes from the meetings are automatically classified for 30 years.

Most of the meetings, however, have been systematically leaked to Hebrew media.

“In the past few days, the public has been exposed to highly selective reports, through the media, of leaks of short comments from the cabinet discussions, which presented a partial and biased picture. These reports affect public trust in the government’s work, and since cabinet members decided to publicize these segments, the public should be allowed to be exposed to the debate in its entirety,” writes Gantz.
