The State Prosecutor's Office issued a statement on Sunday, referring to the police search of the Yedioth Ahronoth Publishing Thursday, in search of sensitive information on matters of national security that may be included in the upcoming book of the former prime minister.

 

In its statement, the State Prosecutor said that it had requested the court issue a warrant to allow it access to Yedioth Ahronoth Publishing, in an effort to find out whether Olmert's memoir contains information that could constitute significant security risks for Israel. After the court's granting the warrant, the Prosecutor's Office handed them over to the police for review.
