Police to investigate former EI chairman Landau

Police will launch an investigation into possible criminal conduct by Eli Landau, former chairman of the board of Electric Israel, the country's sole supplier of electricity, Attorney-General Menahem Mazuz announced on Sunday. Mazuz's announcement did not mention any specific allegations against Landau, but an investigative report which appeared in the daily Yediot Ahronot a few months ago alleged that Landau had exploited his position to hand out tenders to his cronies. The most publicized incident that took place under his six-year tenure as chairman of the Electric Israel (EI) board was his battle with former National Infrastructure Minister Yossi Paritzky over who should be given a NIS 2.5 billion contract to supply natural gas to IE.
