Special advisor in charge of corruption and former police chief, Ya'acov Borovsky announced he would take a leave of absence should charges of corruption be levied against him. "If and when this baseless investigation arrives to the conclusion that I took a bribe or something else, then, according to my personal values and according to the norms that I think need to be followed as a public servant, I will indeed take a temporary leave of absence," he said. Borovsky has been accused of promising to change the members of the police team investigating corruption allegations against Ariel Sharon. He categorically denies the charge.
