The Winograd Committee intends to ask the High Court of Justice for permission to postpone publication of the protocols of testimonies by Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, Defense Minister Amir Peretz and former chief of General Staff Dan Halutz until after Pessah, Channel 2 reported Saturday. In response to a petition filed by Meretz MK Zehava Gal-On and a reprimand from the High Court for not beginning to publish the protocols sooner, the committee promised it would publish the three documents before Pessah.

  • Editorial: Release the transcripts The committee came under heavy fire after the release of the first protocols 10 days ago. Two of the witnesses, Vice Premier and Minister of Negev and Galilee Affairs Shimon Peres and former intelligence chief, Maj.-Gen. (res.) Amos Malka, sharply criticized the committee for publication of their testimonies. In response, the committee issued a statement that they were only publishing the protocols because they were ordered to by the High Court. Originally, the committee had intended to publish the protocols after it released its final report. Later in the week, the committee indicated that it was considering whether to petition the High Court on the question of the protocols, but did not make clear what kind of request it intended to make.
