      Is It Closing In On Him?


      Another investigation regarding Ehud Olmert, Israel's Prime Minister, has begun.  One paper terms it "substantive".  Another is highlighting the decision Attorney-Gneral Mazuz might have to take regarding Olmert's suspension, at this stage.

      The public is in the dark, sort of, because of a gag order although some news has leaked out.

      I guess we'll have to wait.

      And wait the Prime Minister will have to do also.

                                                         

      Good luck, Ehud.
