'State could take PM to court in Bank case despite police recommendation'

Police's recent recommendation not to take Prime Minister Ehud Olmert to court in the case of the Bank Leumi Affair does not necessarily mean that the case will be closed, Army Radio quoted sources in the state comptroller's office as saying on Sunday. The sources said the state-attorney could reverse the decision after studying evidence and findings which were not presented in the police investigation. "It is to be assumed that the incoming state-attorney will not only consider the results of the investigation but the entirety of the findings," the sources said.
