ISRAEL-EHUD-OLMERT-CORRUPTION:Former Israeli PM Olmert found guilty of corruption charge
JERUSALEM (Reuters) – Former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert was found guilty on Tuesday 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 U.S. businessman and double-billing Israeli charities for fund-raising trips overseas.
