Olmert's Lawyer Blames the Media


Attorney Eli Zohar, one of former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert’s lawyers, on Wednesday hinted that the media was responsible for Olmert’s conviction on bribery charges earlier this week, Kol Yisrael radio reported.

While he did not specifically mention Olmert’s verdict, Zohar, who spoke to students at the College of Management in Rishon LeZion, said that the media “judges defendants in the town square”, tries to influence judges and “pollutes” the justice process.
