Prime Minister Ariel Sharon today held a working meeting with Finance Minister Ehud Olmert and instructed that the outstanding issues that are delaying the completion of Government legislation regarding the assets of Holocaust victims be resolved forthwith so that the legislation may be submitted for its second and third Knesset readings before the dissolution of the 16th Knesset.

Finance Minister Olmert said that he will work according to the Prime Minister’s instructions and see to it that these issues, which have not been resolved for many years, are dealt with, thus enabling the legislation to be completed in the next two weeks.
