An aide to Ehud Olmert was suspended as part of a government graft investigation. Shula Zaken was placed on six monthsâ€™ leave over the weekend by Civil Service Commissioner Shmuel Hollander, along with six officials from the Tax Authority. The suspensions are linked to allegations that Zaken, a longtime aide to the Israeli prime minister, exchanged perks for tax breaks. Olmert has voiced support for Zaken, who was first named in the police investigation last month.
