In 1995 a statute (initially legislated in 1958) named "proper administration" was amended. It was another attempt to improve the efficiency of the civil service. Any civil servant should reply a letter within forty five days. A failure to answer within ninety days means... a refusal to answer! Herein a proof that the law has been fake ever since.
On December 22, 1996, I asked (by a certified letter) the Israeli Civil Service Commissioner certain question focusing on disclosure of information concerning civil servant's personal files (it was due to the libelous letter implanted in my personal file at RAFAEL).
Within ten days I received a written memo acknowledging my query and a promise saying that the deputy, Mr. Haim Zonenfeld, should answer my question soon. However I've not received his answer timely. Following fifty days I wrote a reminder. The deputy, Mr. Haim Zonenfeld, personally called me telephonically and excused that they had "likely lost this letter" [sic]. Promptly I sent him a copy by facsimile. Regardless, he failed to answer timely within additional five months. Only then I filed my petition, Bagatz 4556/97 before the Israeli Supreme Court.
