The Movement for Quality Government petitioned the High Court of Justice on Wednesday against Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's intention of appointing Nahum Admoni to the government investigation committee into the war in Lebanon due to be established next week. The watchdog organization charged that Admoni was involved in a conflict of interests because Olmert had appointed his wife to three senior pubic positions in the recent past. It based its allegation on a report aired by Israel Army Radio regarding the appointments. The Movement for Quality Government charged that Admoni owed a debt of gratitude to Olmert for his wife's appointments and said it was only human that Admoni would feel obligated to the Prime Minister, whose activities he would have to investigate as a member of the committee.
