Former justice minister Haim Ramon will on Monday make his first appearance at the Knesset since his conviction for sexually harassing a 20-year-old female soldier. Ramon is expected to make a decision after the May 28 Labor primary about whether to accept Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's unofficial invitation to return to the cabinet. Internal Security Minister Avi Dichter slammed his party colleague in an interview with a Kadima activist website saying that the party could not ignore Ramon's conviction. "As a party that presents itself as having values and changing Israeli politics we cannot take the Ramon incident and say, 'it doesn't matter let's move on.' That just isn't reasonable," said Dichter. Dichter is considered close to Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni whose stature would be harmed if Olmert appoints Ramon to be a minister in charge of negotiations with the Palestinians as has been reported.
