interpreted...as an instruction to give preferential treatment to the entrepreneur" and that the grants "contravenes practices designed to separate the professional and political echelons in government ministries." Ideally yes, there shouldn't be any type of intervention, even indirectly by governmental administrators, but I reread the report's highlights and I still see no direct violation by Olmert and that to request an "update" or that Dinar's office wrote,"Urgent:Ehud has requested a PERSONAL EXAMINATION and that he be updated" does not make him the guilty party of granting the entrepeneur. I deduced the concern by the office because of a) allegations of personal discrimination (discussion in Olmert's office as result) b) the Ministry first approached approved a similar grant in Arad c) the response to the entrepeneur go bug another ministry. Also a number of points are interpretations and heresay which might have different insinuations.
