At the same time, he addressed a letter to Defense Minister Bnei Gantz, to Chief of Staff Aviv Kochavi and to the chairman of the Israeli Broadcasting Corporation, Gil Omer, in which it was stated: “Today it was announced that Zilber is expected to receive a program on IDF waves. This move raises serious suspicion of bribery. In recent years, Adv. Zilber has published various opinions to defense ministers and chiefs of staff, which have thwarted structural changes at the Gali Tzahal station. Zilber’s opinion was and still is denied a legal basis. “

“Her appointment to the position of public broadcaster, which apparently gives her a salary and also a platform to polish her image – and all this shortly after she retires as deputy ombudsman, ostensibly establishes suspicion of giving and receiving bribes,” he explained.

In addition, in his letter, the MK asked to freeze the start of the program until it was examined whether a criminal flaw had been made in the decision. explanation.
