Mazuz Disqualifies Two Members of Olmert's Inquiry Commission

I previously wrote in the post entitled Saving Olmert's Hide:
I personally saw an article in HaYisraeli, showing how most if not all those appointed by Olmert to investigate the war have received favors from Olmert in the past or are in need of favors in the future. Too bad that I did not save the article, and too bad that HaYisraeli doesn't have on online edition!
Olmert does not know that you just cannot fool all the people all the time! His Inquiry Cover-up Committee received another blow today as two of its members are disqualified:
Attorney General Menachem Mazuz has disqualified David Haivri and Yedidya Ya’ari from serving on Prime Minister Ehud Olmert’s Edmoni Commission investigating government actions during the war in Lebanon.

Mazuz explained that there is a conflict of interests, with Haivri serving as the Boeing representative in Israel and Ya’ari being affiliated with the quasi-governmental Rafael weapons development firm.

Mazuz’s legal opinion comes ahead of a Movement for Quality Government petition to the Supreme Court seeking to have the two disqualified for obvious conflict of interests.

The move is yet another embarrassment for Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, who is under mounting pressure to approve an independent state commission of inquiry into the war.
It looks like the rule of Ehud Olmert, probably Israel's worst Prime Minister ever, is nearing its end.
