Defense Minister Ehud Barak on Monday will be appearing before the Knesset Audit Committee to explain lavish hotel expenses while on an official visit to Paris, as was reported last month by YWN-Israel.

According to a state comptroller’s report, the visit with his official delegation carried a NIS 1 million price tag, several times the cost of similar trips in earlier years. The defense minister treated himself to a luxury suite that cost the state NIS 20,000 a night.
