Prosecution to Request Flagrancy Clause for Olmerrt

The Israeli prosecutor's office will meet within the next few days to decide on its stand vis a vis the recommneded sentence for former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, who was cleared due to reasonable doubt from the indictment on the Talansky illegal monies and  the RishonTours counts, but found guilty on four other counts of breach of trust. 

The hearings on the sentence will be held in the Jerusalem Courts on September 5th and the prosecution expects that, once the briefs are read and analysed, that there will be no choice other than to request that the courts recognize that Olmert's actions be considered "flagrant offenses", meaning that he cannot hold public office in the future.
