Top Police Investigator Recommends Indicting Ohlmert

( The head of the police investigation regarding Olmert's alleged intervention in the Bank Leumi privatization recommends charges against the Prime Minister.

The investigative team as a whole leans towards an indictment of the Prime Minister, in opposition to the stance taken by the head of the Police Department's Investigations Wing, Yochanan Danino.

The Bank Leumi case is one of four cases against the Prime Minister currently being investigated by the police. It involves suspicions that Olmert, as Acting Minister of Finance in late 2005, attempted to change the terms of the sale of the bank to fit the terms of two of his friends, who were in the bidding to buy it. The friends later dropped out.

The police have apparently found that had the sale gone through according to the amended terms, the State of Israel stood to lose $250 million. Olmert's defenders, on the other hand, say it is normal to amend the terms of a deal during the negotiating stage.

Israel's Neville Chamberlain may finally get his upcommence. Not from a popular revolt of the people, but a flawed legal system that occasionally may get things right.

Please let this happen!! Then the whole government will fall apart, as a lot of the members of the coalition won’t support Livni (who would be even worse than Olmert, if that’s possible).
