Likud funds scandal

JERUSALEM (Reuters) - The Israeli Justice Ministry indicted Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's son on Tuesday in a campaign funding scandal that has stoked anger among Jewish ultranationalists opposed to the planned Gaza Strip withdrawal.

Attorney-General Menachem Mazuz cleared Sharon in the case in February but said his son, Omri, would face charges including fraud, breach of trust and perjury. The indictment, a copy of which was obtained by Reuters, was formally served on Tuesday.

I always thought that part of the motive for the gaza deal, was to make himself indespensible to government, so that he wouldn't be charged himself.
