If Shas won't kick Olmert to the curb - maybe the police can

Once again, the Israeli Prime Minister, Ehud Olmert is under criminal investigation and will be questioned tomorrow by police. This interrogation potentially relates to one of the three investigations currently being conducted into Olmert's activities by the Israeli Police. Taken from a Jerusalem Post report:
Prime Minister Ehud Olmert will be investigated in his Jerusalem office on Friday by police's Fraud Investigation Unit, according to a Channel 2 report Thursday night. The hastily-scheduled meeting was enabled after police received special authorization from Attorney-General Menahem Mazuz to summon Olmert within 48 hours.

It was not clear which investigation the surprise questioning was related to. Two criminal investigations and one preliminary police probe are currently open against the prime minister.
It is not entirely out of the realm of ordinary to think this investigation may represent a 4th separate criminal matter – this is Ehud Olmert after all.
