New report on Olmert's corruption should be published before the elections

Israel National News just translated NFC webmaster Yoav Yitzhak's latest report on Ehud Olmert's corruption into English (Hebrew version is here), and a good point is made here that the latest findings should be published before, not after, the elections:
An offical report, allegedly implicating Olmert in corruption as Minister of Industry and Trade will be issued after the election. Independent journalist Yoav Yitzhak says delay is political.

The State Comptroller, charged with investigating allegations of inefficiency and corruption in the government, is investigating charges that Acting Prime Minister Ehud Olmert (Kadima) used his position as Minister of Industry and Trade to make illegal appointments of cronies to top government jobs.

The report, which highlights Olmert’s involvement in the illegal appointments, is expected to be published by the comptroller’s office after the March 28 general election.

Yoav Yitzhak, an independent journalist whose frequent revelations of wrongdoings among Israel’s politically powerful have often rocked the establishment, contends that that the delay in publishing the comptroller’s report is politically motivated.

Yitzhak claims that State Comptroller Micha Lindenstrausse’s report shows that Olmert abused his privilege to make appointments by handing out jobs based on political or personal considerations. The appointments allegedly were put into place by the ministry’s director general, Ra’anan Dinur, himself an Olmert political appointee.
As the Likud says, the full report should be published prior to the elections:
The Likud party, one of the Kadima party’s chief rivals in the upcoming election, has demanded that the Comptroller publish his report before the election.

A Likud spokesman said that when the issue is the conduct of a candidate for prime minister, “the public has a right to know the facts” regarding that candidate before the election. “The public must know who Olmert is before the March 28 election,” said the spokesman.
