Jerusalem - AFP

The appointment of Jacob Frenkel as Israel\'s next central bank governor has come under a cloud over his failure to disclose a past allegation of shoplifting, local media said Sunday. The Haaretz newspaper said that a committee on senior civil service appointments has asked the JP Morgan Chase International chairman to explain why he failed to inform it of a 2006 incident in a duty-free shop at Hong Kong international airport. \"As he was leaving the store, a bottle of cologne that appeared not to have been paid for was found among Frenkel\'s belongings,\" the paper reported. \"A security guard then apprehended Frenkel and prevented him from boarding his flight, with the event captured on security cameras,\" it said. It added that Frenkel was confined to an airport hotel for 24 hours before being allowed to travel. He denies wrongdoing. \"Local authorities in Hong Kong reached the conclusion that this was an unfortunate misunderstanding, and expressed their apology and their appreciation that I did not sue them for compensation,\" he said in a statement published in newspapers on Sunday. \"I expect to take office as governor of the Bank of Israel in early October,\" he added. Israeli public radio said that the appointments committee convened to discuss his case on Sunday but was likely to hold several more sessions before reaching any conclusions. The body itself issued a terse statement which gave no details, not even confirming that it was meeting on Sunday. \"The committee for senior appointments headed by (retired) justice Jacob Turkel which is examining the appointment of Professor Jacob Frenkel to the post of governor of the Bank of Israel will convene in the coming days to continue its discussions,\" it said. Frenkel, 70, was named last month to replace former World Bank chief economist Stanley Fischer, 69, who is stepping down from the central bank governorship after eight years on the job. The nomination still needs cabinet approval. Frenkel previously held the post from 1991 to 2000.
