The material amassed during the investigation of Prime Minister Ehud Olmert on the sale of Bank Leumi was "relatively limited," Army Radio quoted State Prosecutor Eran Shendar as saying Tuesday. "The magnitude of the material in nowhere near the investigation of former minister Aryeh Deri," he wrote in a response to a query by MK Zehava Gal-On (Meretz). Shendar refused to say whether he would remain in his current position until after it was decided whether Olmert would be indicted. "As long as the Bank Leumi case file is brought to my desk by the time I leave, the decision will be made by me. In the event that the case file comes after my replacement is appointed, the decision in the case will be made by him," Shendar wrote to Gal-On.
