Police on Monday recommended that former prime minister Ehud Olmert be indicted over allegations that he made political appointments in the Authority for Small and Medium-Sized Businesses during his term as minister of industry, trade and labor. Olmert is suspected of having changed the rules at the authority to hire a woman with whom he had close political ties as deputy director-general. She, in turn, allegedly appointed at least three new project managers who were members of the Likud central committee while employing improper procedures and without giving others a fair chance at the job.
