Former Israeli PM Olmert found guilty of corruption charge

July 10, 2012

JERUSALEM: Former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert was found guilty today of a corruption charge but acquitted on two other counts.

The verdict was announced in a Jerusalem court, which convicted him of bribery related to his term as Israel’s trade and industry minister before he became prime minister in 2006. Sentencing will be at a later date.

He was acquitted of charges of receiving bribes from a US businessman and double-billing Israeli charities for fund-raising trips overseas.
