Criminal Probe of Israel's Olmert Ordered

By Critical_Conformity     Jan 16, 2007 in Crime
Israel's state prosecutor has ordered a criminal investigation into Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's role in the 2005 privatization of Israel's second largest bank and it's a criminal investigation!
The opposition right-wing Likud Party -- Yuval Steinitz -- called for the prime minister to step down and for a new election to be held.
The left-wing Meretz Party, told Israel Radio: "This is the beginning of the end for Olmert."
This is just another ...among political scandals and criticism of Olmert from within Israel itself which include: last summer's inconclusive war between Israel and the Lebanese Hezbollah guerrilla group, that has made Olmert slipped to 14 percent and his centrist Kadima party would lose nearly two-thirds of its strength in a new election.
