Detectives from the National Fraud Unit entered the offices of the Ministry of Industry, Trade, and Labor in Jerusalem on Tuesday and confiscated documents "linked to the investigation into Prime Minister Ehud Olmert," police spokesman Mickey Rosenfeld said. Rosenfeld added that the search "should not be seen as a raid." Prime Minister Olmert served as Minister of Industry, Trade, and Labor from 2003 to 2006. Police say Olmert is suspected of illegally receiving funds from New York financier Morris Talansky from the 1990s up until 2005, and appear to be tracing Olmert's paper (or computer file) trail through his former offices.
