Attorney-General Menahem Mazuz on Monday submitted a complaint by the Ometz organization, which alleged that Prime Minister Ehud Olmert had received favors as part of real estate transactions, to the state prosecutor for an initial investigation. The investigation was to check whether there was enough evidence for police to open a criminal investigation, or if there was room to bring the complaint before the state comptroller, who was looking into other real estate transactions that Olmert had made. The organization's complaint related to information publicized some two weeks ago, according to which Olmert sold an apartment located in Jerusalem's Nahlaot neighborhood for more than its market value, and acquired an apartment in Tel Aviv for less than its market value.
