Efraim Feinblum, director-general of Silicat Industries, one of the companies at the center of the latest criminal investigation ordered against Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, came to the defense of the prime minister on Monday morning. Part of the case against Olmert involves a decision by the Investment Center to grant the status of an "approved industry" to Silicat, Inc., which was represented by Olmert's former law partner and close friend, Uri Messer. Feinblum told Army Radio that there was no link between Olmert's friendship with Messer and the Investment Center's decision.
