Shas MK: Olmert Should be Given Community Service, Not Jail Time


MK Nissim Ze’ev (Shas) said on Thursday that former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert should be given community service and be forced to pay a heavy fine, but should not be sent to prison.

Ze’ev spoke to Arutz Sheva two days after Olmert was sentenced to six years in jail and two more years' suspended sentence in the Holyland trial. The former Prime Minister was convicted on March 31 on two counts of receiving bribes.
