Former prime minister Ehud Olmert is scheduled to testify to the state commission of inquiry into the treatment of evacuees of the Gaza disengagement on Wednesday morning, Israel Radio reported. Former judge Eliyahu Matza, Dr. Shimon Ravid and Prof. Yedidya Stern - all members of the commission - toured the Lachish and Haluza area to gain a first-hand view of the lots prepared to house the evacuees in new homes. The commission was established several months ago at the behest of the Knesset's State Control Committee, and intends to publish an interim report in the near future. Olmert was indicted last week on corruption-related charges. He is the first former prime minister to have been indicted in Israel's history.
