Justice Minister Amir Ohana, who took office only two weeks ago, asked the ministry’s vehicle administration to replace his regular MK’s car with a Toyota Land Cruiser jeep that is used by government ministers, Channel 13 News reported on Monday.
According to the report, the ministry refused the request and explained to Ohana that due to the cost of maintaining the vehicle and due to the fact that the government is a transitional government that will not last long, the request cannot be fulfilled.
The minister again demanded the replacement vehicle, but the ministry’s officials refused the request again for the same reasons. In the end, a replacement was made for a less prestigious vehicle, a Chevrolet.
”When it turned out that this was not possible, the minister chose and received a used vehicle from the vehicle administration according to the relevant rules.”
