Liora Glat-Berkovitch, a prosecutor who handled the investigation into Sharon's dealings with a South-African businessman, admitted to political motives behind her leaking the information on the investigation. She said that her son is about to begin his military service, and she did not want Sharon to remain a PM. She is likely to stand trial. She has been a prosecutor for close to 30 years.
Haaretz reporter to whom the info was leaked is being investigated. An attorney interviewed on the radio said the leak is a very serious offense, but completely exonerates the reporter, saying that he was doing his job the way he is supposed to. I absolutely agree, but I don't think it is a coincidence that Haaretz was chosen for the leak. (IBA radio).
