Labor MK and former cabinet minister Ophir Paz-Penis on Saturday urged Attorney-General Menahem Mazuz to promptly publicize the apparently new allegations against Prime Minister Ehud Olmert. Speaking to Israel Radio, Paz-Penis said that if the allegations are indeed so severe that they lead to an indictment, Olmert cannot possibly continue to serve as prime minister "even for one more day." "Mazuz needs to immediately tell the public what is going on. If there are proofs, concrete allegations, and if the accusations are of bribery and taking money, there isn't a more severe offense for a pubic servant, especially for a prime minister," he added. Nevertheless, the former cabinet minister urged the political establishment not to make any hasty decisions until the allegations are made public.
