A media advisor to former prime minister Ehud Olmert issued a scathing response Monday evening to police's announcement that they intend to recommend an indictment against Olmert over inappropriate appointments he allegedly made. Amir Dan accused state prosecutors and the police of carefully timing the publication in order to "blur" and "whitewash" that fact that Attorney-General Menahem Mazuz announced his decision Monday to close another case against Olmert - one involving alleged irregularities in his purchase of a home on Jerusalem's Rehov Cremieux. "The public is tired of this conduct by the prosecution and the police, who are busy with creating spins in the media, all the while engaged in petty and inappropriate score settling," Dan said. "It is regrettable that such a circus is run by law enforcement authorities."
