"After reading the state comptroller's report into the allegations you will understand that the prime minister is person who hands out money to his friends," said MK Shelly Yacimovich (Labor)on Monday, a day after Attorney-General Menahem Mazuz ordered police to launch a third criminal investigation into the affairs of the prime minister. Yacimovich (Labor) told The Knesset Channel that Labor must withdraw for the government while the Olmert faced, what she called, "the most severe of accusations." "I expect us to stop being a fig leaf to a corrupt prime minister," she said.
