Olmert: I Never Took a Bribe


Former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert on Tuesday told the judge in the Holyland affair that he had never taken a bribe. He was speaking during the second day of his sentencing hearing.

Olmert was convicted on March 31 on two counts of receiving bribes in connection with the Jerusalem property development, in one of the biggest corruption scandals in Israeli history.
