Former World Bank ethics body chief says Wolfowitz lied at hearing

You've done a great job, Wolfie!
World Bank President Paul Wolfowitz lied at a hearing on Monday when he said a bank ethics panel had advised him to give his girlfriend a promotion, the Dutch news agency ANP reported Wednesday.
Ad Melkert, chairman of the ethics committee at the World Bank at the time, told a Dutch TV program Tuesday that Wolfowitz "certainly did not tell the truth," ANP said.
Melkert is the former Dutch social affairs minister and a former leader of the Dutch Labor Party, one of the three parties in the current coalition government.
