It appears that Olmert is not quite coated with teflon, after all. After being investigated for numerous charges of corruption, at least one indictment might actually be handed down. This news comes after the Talansky bribery case fell apart a few months ago. Attorney General Mazuz intends to charge the outgoing prime minister with fraud, breach of trust and tax evasion. Olmert “allegedly” over-billed “abroad sponsored by Jewish institutions, and either pocketed the difference or financed trips for relatives.”
Olmert’s attorneys continue to defend this despicable person, denying the any wrongdoing, and calling the likely indictment “puzzling and unreasonable.” What is unreasonable is that Israel continues to be led by a corrupt individual, who is arguably Israel’s worst prime minister in history.
I only hope that some modicum of justice actually be served, and Olmert will see the inside of a prison cell very soon.
