Finance Minister Avraham Hirchson is expected to suspend himself Sunday as he fights charges that he embezzled funds when he served as chairman of the National Workers Union, according to a report in the Yediot Aharonot newspaper. Reportedly, Hirchson will inform Prime Minister Ehud Olmert of his intention to stand down from his post until the end of the investigation. Hirchson's associates said that the finance minister had made the decision over the weekend. They quoted Hirchosn as saying that he hoped the case would be concluded speedily and that the "media offensive" would subsequently grind to a halt.
