Haaretz has caused a media storm by exposing a secret Justice Ministry document about a police investigation into some financial stuff Arik Sharon and his sons are involved in, which could be illegal.
You can read the original Haaretz story here and today's follow-ups here and here.
Arik Sharon's lawyers and advisors claim very convincingly that the whole issue is completely legal and above board.
It's all a bit complicated for me to understand. I'm hopeless with anything to do with banks and money and collateral. It's early days to see where this is all going.
This could lose the Likud the elections, or it could end up as a boomerang and bring back voters who have drifted off, when they see that Mitzna might win as a result.
