Likud faction head Gideon Sa'ar said on Monday that "the attorney-general's decision [to open a criminal investigation against Prime Minister Ehud Olmert] is a slap in the face for the deligitimization campaign that the prime minister and his associates have been conducting against the state comptroller and the law enforcement authorities." In addition, Sa'ar said, "the fact that this is the second case pertaining to the prime minister that the state comptroller passed to the attorney-general - and [led to a decision] to open a criminal investigation - shows that the state comptroller's investigations were relevant and were apparently based on facts and evidence."
