Ivri, Ya'iri disqualified from Admoni Committee

Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's efforts to set up three different investigative committees' to probe the War in Lebanon, rather than one State Commission of Inquiry, hit another snag Tuesday when two members of the committee to look into the political echelon's conduct of the war were disqualified because of a conflict of interest. Attorney General Menahem Mazuz informed the Prime Minister's Office Tuesday evening that David Ivri and Yedidya Ya'ari could not take part in the committee. Mazuz's opinion came the same day the Supreme Court ordered the state to respond to a petition by the Movement for Quality Government in Israel against their appointments.
