Already facing a loss of sup- port over allegations of vote- buying and corruption in November's Likud Party pri- maries, Sharon took another blow with the latest disclosure involving himself and his sons, Omri and Gilad. The Israeli daily Ha'aretz reported that an investigation of alleged bribery, fraud and breach of trust had been launched surrounding a $1.5 million loan Sharon's sons took from Cyril Kern, a family friend in South Africa. According to the report, Gilad and Omri Sharon re- ceived the money from Kern as collateral for a loan they took to pay back a company through which Sharon had received illegal campaign con- tributions in his 1999 bid for the Likud Party leadership. Among the allegations was whether Sharon misled police when he told them in April 2002 that the contributions, repaid at the order ofthe State taxes, with full disclosure to South African Comptroller, were paid back the relevant authorities, whic through a mortgage on his Attorney General Elyakim gation.
