The police has multiple fictitious tax receipts and investigators have at least one incriminating testimony against Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, probably from an employee of the Rishon Tours travel agency, Channel 2 reported Friday evening. "Olmert invented the fraud mechanism and oversaw it personally," a police source told Channel 2. Earlier Friday, the Justice Ministry and the police unveiled stunning new allegations against Olmert, accusing him of getting multiple sources to pay for identical trips abroad so he could pocket the difference. The new suspicions - made public shortly after police questioned Olmert for a third time in a burgeoning corruption scandal - could make it even tougher for the embattled leader to hang on to his job and pursue peacemaking with the Palestinians.
