PMO director-general interrogated on suspicion of fraud, breach of trust

Ra'anan Dinur, the director-general of the Prime Minister's Office, was interrogated under caution Wednesday by the National Fraud Unit over suspicions of fraud and breach of public trust. The suspicions are tied to Dinur's alleged involvement in political appointments during his term as director-general of the Industry, Trade and Labor Ministry, between 2003 and 2006, when Prime Minister Ehud Olmert headed the ministry. Cabinet Secretary Oved Yehzekel, who served at that time as a senior aide to Olmert was also interrogated in recent days, the National Fraud Unit said.
