National Security Minister Itamar Ben Gvir’s chief of staff is reportedly being employed illegally, without an employment contract as a member of the civil service.

Haaretz reports that almost three months after entering the role, Chanamel Dorfman still doesn’t have a contract, and it isn’t clear who his employer is.

Other reports say the Civil Service Commission has confirmed these details.

Dorfman, a former far-right settler activist of the loosely organized “hilltop youth,” has sent official letters to senior police commanders on behalf of Ben Gvir, including a letter asking the police chief to cut 25% of police spokesperson’s office staff. Despite being a private citizen, he signed himself Ben Gvir’s chief of staff.

Haaretz quotes an unnamed senior police source saying that in the current situation, Dorfman’s behavior amounts to “impersonation.”
