There is no evidence to justify opening an investigation against Acting Prime Minister Ehud Olmert over an affair involving the Beitar Jerusalem soccer club, Attorney-General Menahem Mazuz informed the head of the watchdog Ometz organization on Monday. Organization head Aryeh Avineri asked Mazuz to investigate the affair following allegations raised by journalist Yoav Yitzhak last week in his internet newspaper, News First Class. According to Mazuz, an investigation was conducted into the affair in 1999 and concluded that Olmert, who was mayor of Jerusalem at the time, had not been guilty of any misconduct.
