Attorney-General Yehuda Weinstein said on Thursday that although he would not be able to be involved in the criminal aspects of the Holyland affair, there were also civil and administrative aspects that he was not barred from handling.

Weinstein was one of former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's lawyers before being appointed attorney-general and signed a conflict of interest agreement barring him from taking part in criminal matters involving his former client.The police revealed on Thursday that Olmert was the key suspect in the case.

According to a statement issued by the Justice Ministry on Thursday evening, Weinstein held a meeting to discuss the Holyland affair with State Attorney Moshe Lador and senior ministry and police officials.

The statement said that "the police reviewed the principle findings in the investigation so far and the participants discussed the measures to be taken. They also discussed various administrative and civil aspects stemming from the affair and their future significance and implications. These aspects will be dealt with by Justice Ministry officials headed by the attorney-general, the state attorney and the relevant deputy state attorneys."
