Last night, the Judge Ben-Attar put his head into a poliethilene bag. His suicide note says that the work stress was too much for him. He had returned from a meeting with his superiors who questioned his fitness to be a judge, since he was unable to make up the accumulated delay of his caseload.
The Minister of Finance fainted and was hospitalized yesternight. He just returned from a meeting where he was held responsible for the recent rises in food and gas prices, while tax revenues are larger than planned. Leftist parties smell a popular issue that they can ride against the government and they are organizing demonstrations. He said that international commodity prices were not under his control.
