Labor Party doves are campaigning to restore Ezer Weizman to the policy-making Inner Cabinet, now that authorities say they have insufficient evidence of his alleged contacts with the Palestine Liberation Organization.
Although the Laborites’ demands have been contemptuously dismissed by Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir, who originally dismissed Weizman last month, the issue has generated additional friction in the Likud-Labor unity coalition.
Attorney General Yosef Harish announced Feb. 15 that a police investigation did not produce sufficient evidence to try Weizman for alleged contacts with the PLO.
