According to a report appearing in the London-based Arabic language Al-Shark Al-Awsat newspaper, quoting aides to Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, a well-known Likud Party activist is responsible for police launching the ongoing investigation against Prime Minister Olmert.

The prime minister’s aides allege the woman released the information to sabotage the growing political gains achieved by the prime minister, pointing to significant progress in negotiations with Israel’s neighbors towards achieving comprehensive regional peace.

In the meantime, while the New York Post and other newspapers have released details pertaining to the case, here in Israel a gag order remains and the media is prohibited from releasing details at this time.
