Police will launch an investigation into possible criminal conduct by Eli Landau, former chairman of the board of Electric Israel, the country's sole supplier of electricity, Attorney-General Menahem Mazuz announced on Sunday. Mazuz's announcement did not mention any specific allegations against Landau, but an investigative report which appeared in the daily Yediot Ahronot a few months ago alleged that Landau had exploited his position to hand out tenders to his cronies. The most publicized incident that took place under his six-year tenure as chairman of the Electric Israel (EI) board was his battle with former National Infrastructure Minister Yossi Paritzky over who should be given a NIS 2.5 billion contract to supply natural gas to IE.
