Prosecutors: Olmert Defense Attack Not Worth Response

The State Prosecutor's Office responded, Thursday evening, to an attorney for former prime minister Ehud Olmert, who attacked the decision to file an appeal of Olmert's acquittal in the Rishontours and Talansky corruption cases.

The prosecutor's office said, in a statement, "The appeal was inevitable and decided on unanimously. The [defense's] systematic, personal tirade on the eve of the hearing about the appeal is not worthy of a response."
